In Nomine held an 80s’ themed active day for Itella, an international logistics company on International Children’s Day. Despite bad weather we started at the northernmost tip of Estonia, at cape Purekkari. There we ran into the jolly SKUUP food caravan and the artist Priit Öövel.
Our journey continued at the former submarine degaussing station at Hara harbour where in addition to an eventful tour we received helpful tips how to go camping with your car.
The evening culminated with a lovely performance by the Ilves Sisters and the fashion designer of Baltika. Valkla Scandinavian-style beach restaurant was host to a delicious dinner.
The 28th of April was a grand day at the A Le Coq Arena. We lined up Renault estate cars, the Talisman Grandtour, the Megane Grandtour and the Clio Grandtour, and determined which car could pack the most stuff.
We used ordinary but clunky items to pack in the three cars. For example, there were three different size bicycles, an exercise ball, a large gym bag and a pair of skis. Estonians appreciate practicality above all else in their cars and that is backed up by the cars on our roads.
All of the three Renault models are available in sedan and estate body shapes but half of them are bought in the latter configuration. The affinity for small cars that is present in larger, more congested European cities, has not yet reached Estonia.
The Estonian Football Association’s car fleet consists exclusively of Renault models which is why the press event took place at the Arena.
The three Renault’s boot space is as follows: the Clio Grandtour has 445 litres of boot space which grows to 1380 litres with the back seats reclined. The Megane Grandtour has an impressive 521 litres of boot capacity and 1504 litres with the rear seats reclined. Lastly, The boot of the Talisman Grandtour can fit 572 litres of items and the number grows to 1621 litres with the rear seats laid flat.
The 10th of April was a special day. The Viking FSTR, a catamaran for passengers and vehicles started servicing the Tallinn-Helsinki route. The Viking FSTR can make the voyage in 1 hour and 45 minutes.
The first passengers were greeted at the Port of Tallinn by a brass band, Inno Borodenko, the director of Viking Line Estonia and Margus Vihman, a member of the board of the Port of Tallinn.
After the inital proceedings, In Nomine employees and journalists were given the opportunity to further acquaint themselves with the catamaran. A small Q&A followed, where attendees could ask questions about the ship from the captain and the shipowner.
