Evolved tremendously

"The port has evolved tremendously in recent years as both a commercial and transportation hub,” said Poul Erik Jakobsen.

Harbour master Søren Brink predicted a great summer in 2014.

“The mood at our forthcoming harbour festival in July could well turn out to be even more self-confident and optimistic,” he said.
