The Race Two finish line of the Three Festivals Tall Ships Regatta 2018 is fast approaching with just over 100 nautical miles to go, so for the front runners the race is still tight.
“Sunday (10 June) is probably the toughest day yet as Atyla retained her lead through the night … but the rest of the pack is closing in. Arawak and Belle Poule are striving hard, whilst Morgenster is running the fastest through the morning and looking to rejoin the fleet, but currently lying in fourth place overall. Meanwhile, a contest between De Gallant and Belem is growing at the rear as Belem keeps within distance whilst enduring light winds.
“The weather forecast looks to freshen the winds on the course and will keep everyone on their toes.”
Ben Stuart, Race Director, Sail Training International

ABOUT THE THREE FESTIVALS TALL SHIPS REGATTA 2018
The Three Festivals Tall Ships Regatta is a two-leg event across three sea areas will take place in north-west Europe. Liverpool, United Kingdom (U.K.) will be the start port, then vessels will race to Dublin, Republic of Ireland (R.O.I), and onto Bordeaux, France. The Regatta will see an international fleet of Tall Ships undertake a voyage across the Irish Sea, Celtic Sea and Bay of Biscay.
Any Tall Ships Regatta is a spectacular event for visitors and crew alike, and the Three Festivals Tall Ships Regatta 2018 is no exception. Each stop on the regatta route will coincide with major celebrations as Liverpool marks the ten year anniversary of their year as the European capital of culture and Bordeaux hold the leading European wine festival, Bordeaux Fête le Vin.
