Mooring plan


In the Port of Mariehamn double berthing is necessary. Traditionally the tall ships where moored like this during their summer stop overs in the 1920’s and 1930’s.

When establishing the mooring plan, we will consider factors such as: length, draught and freeboard, special requests from ship captains, rig construction, requests on daysailing, open deck and deck events. We will mix nationalities within the fleet and also consider the Parade of sail and the number of pilots, within the area.
