Acknowledgments to all contestants!

The award giving which was appointed for today is unfortunately postponed by the Jury’s decision in token of sympathy for the city’s mourning of the flood victims.

The awarding of photographs will take place at the opening night of the Tall Ships Regatta Exhibition during the Week of the Sea.

We take this opportunity to offer our condolences to the families of the victims.  The Port’s staff makes every effort to cooperate using the Port’s equipment and volunteers in order to provide any assistance to the residents of the suburbs affected by the flooding.
