Host Port Seminar 2024 Turku

We are delighted to announce The Tall Ships Races & Regattas Host Port Seminar 2024 will be held during The Tall Ships Races in Turku, Finland on Saturday 20 July 2024.

We very much hope that you will be able to join us for what promises to be an informative and enjoyable gathering. In addition to the seminar programme, attendees will have the opportunity to see the organisation of the Turku event first-hand, while also networking with delegates from other cities.

Attendance at the seminar is FREE OF CHARGE and offers an experiential, informative opportunity for those interested in hosting a future event, hosting an endorsed event or already contracted to host a Sail Training International event. Importantly, it will also offer delegates the opportunity to network with the participating fleet and their Captains, and discuss their participation in future events.

Host ports are integral to the success of any Tall Ships events, and the more future Host Ports can prepare, share best practice and collaborate – quite simply the more successful an event will be.
