Tall ship races and regattas


Kapitan Głowacki was built around 1942 in Germany as a semi-military ship. She was abandoned after the war and found by some Polish people lying in the sand in the North-West corner of Poland. She was quickly renovated as a sailing ship and served as a training vessel undertaking various exercises for maritime schools in Poland during the 1950s, 1960s and part of the 1970s.

In the 1980s she was rebuilt again, this time as a square rigger and let as a school ship for the Polish Sailing Association. Kapitan Glowacki is now operated by 3Oceans Ltd.

She has been a regular participant in the Tall Ships Races.
