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!

Rouen

Rouen is a city with long history located on the River Seine in Normandy, North France. It’s also the venue of L’Armada, a sailing festival which will celebrate its 30th anniversary in 2019. When visiting Rouen you can’t miss the Gothic Cathedral and Palais de Justice. For nature lovers the Roumare Forest just outside the city is the place to be, while art enthusiasts should visit Musee Secq des Tournelles – the wrought iron museum.

The Hague

The Hague is the seat of government in the Netherlands and the third-largest city of the Netherlands, after Amsterdam and Rotterdam. King Willem-Alexander of the Netherlands plans to live at Huis ten Bosch and works at Noordeinde Palace in The Hague, together with Queen Máxima. Most foreign embassies in the Netherlands and 150 international organisations are located in the city. This is one of the major cities hosting the United Nations, along with New York, Geneva, Vienna and Addis Ababa.
