Sail in The Tall Ships Races 2017: It’ Time to Plan Your Adventure
The Tall Ships Races and Regattas may be over for 2016 – but now it’ time to plan your 2017 big sea adventure.
As well as the transatlantic Rendez-Vous 2017 Tall Ships Regatta – we can’t wait to return to the Baltic Sea for the iconic Tall Ships Races 2017.
Tall Ships Races 2017 promises to be one of our most spectacular yet –
taking in four different countries, across five ports from the end of
June to the beginning of August.
Starting in Halmstad, Sweden, we race across to Kotka, Finland and then enjoy a cruise in company to Turku, Finland. From there we race to Klaipeda, Lithuania and then have a third and final race to Szczecin, Poland. And you can take part in just one, or all of the legs in this epic event.
ports have hosted a total of 11 successful Tall Ships Races and
Regattas between them. And, each city is eager to welcome the
international fleet back to its shores.
