Shetland Fish Products Ltd becomes Host Port Supporter

Shetland Fish Products Ltd has become the latest sponsor to give its support to The Tall Ships Races 2011 – Lerwick with a £2000 contribution towards the Lerwick leg.

Shetland Fish ProductsIt’s expected over 2,500 crew and 10,000 visitors will dock in Shetland when The Tall Ships Races 2011, presented by Szczecin and organised by Sail Training International, hits Lerwick on Thursday 21st July till Sunday 24th July. Some 54 ships have already signed up to take part, among them the stunning Alexander von Humboldt from Germany.

Shetland Fish Products Ltd Managing Director, Helge Korsager said: “I was here the last time the event was in Lerwick in 1999 with some of our key clients. We had a great time. I am only too pleased that we can support it this time.

“The program looks good – and I am just pleased that so many local people are putting so much effort into getting the event off the ground. Well done. Just a little bit of sadness as I would have loved to have been one of the crew members on one of the ships. Maybe next time.”

Fiona Dally, project manager for The Tall Ships Races 2011 – Lerwick, said: “We are very grateful to Shetland Fish Products Ltd for this support and as the event draws nearer it is good to have them on board as a Supporter”.
