Måløy is a small fishing port between Bergen and Aalesund, by the mouth of Nordfjord.
Although it is on an island, there is a bridge across to the mainland, and as so often, it is not obvious when you are on an island or the mainland.
Distance from Stavanger: 170 km

Tall Ships Races for 2008 begin in Liverpool England - the (EU) European
Capital of Culture for 2008, leaving on 21 July.
Bergen was one of a number of Capitals of Culture in 2000. Stavanger will be the (non-EU) European Capital of Culture in 2008, but it will not be an "Open Port" to tall ships - they will sail straight past on their way to Den Helder.
Kids Verdict: This should be fun to watch for a while - especially getting on board some of the ships. Hopefully there will be other activities - like letting them make their own wooden tall ships, as in 2004 Tall Ships Race in Stavanger (from which some of the pictures come).
