New ferry on Hiiumaa line called Muhumaa

kitse_piltFor some incomprehensible reason, Saaremaa Shipping Comany has named the new ferry operating between Hiiumaa and the mainland after the third largest island of Estonia – Muhumaa. But nevertheless, this ferry is brand new and sets a record in speed – instead of 1,5 hour travel, the crossing now takes only an hour and 15 minutes.

As an old Hiiumaa tradition goes, a goat is the first to welcome the „iron ship”. This time was no exception, Muusi the goat and the holder of the Hiiumaa tradition, former Mayor of Pühalepa municipality Tõnu Otsasson were inspecting the ship.

Letter from the President

hannesThere is a well-known saying that the sea unites and the sea separates. Over the centuries, it has held true for the Baltic Sea, the home for millions of people. How to lead our existence together has been a crucial question from the long past.

The last 20 years of cooperation between the Baltic Sea islands have proved fruitful. Hiiumaa has a pleasant opportunity as well as a huge responsibility to hold the 2010 Chairmanship of the B7.

We will continue to focus on the Baltic Sea Strategy and environmental issues. Together we will seek to give the B7 network an internationally accepted organisational form while continuing the traditional activities and looking for new collaborations.

We wish this year to be successful for the Baltic Sea cooperation and to bring new friends who can cherish this vulnerable and precious place.

Yours Faithfully, Hannes Maasel, The Mayor of Hiiu County and B7 President 2010
