About Tall Ships Races
The Tall Ships Races is a huge event involving Tall Ships, small Ship and yachts. These days the vessels take part in races, Cruise in Company (non-competitive) leg, and maritime festivals in harbours. The trainees don’t need to have any sailing experience to join, as they will be provided with Sail Training by the crews. They take active part in sailing the vessels, trying to cross the finish line before the others. They learn to steer, navigate, trim the sails and keep lookout for other vessels. But it’s about more than sailing! In ports, a celebration of international friendships lasts for four days. While the spectators enjoy visiting the ships, listening to concerts and taking in the unique atmosphere of an outdoor family event, the trainees and crews take part in the Crew Parade, Crew Party, competitions and excursions. This is the time to meet people from other vessels and exchange the stories from the high seas!
