Tall Ships Races
The Tall Ships Races are the world’s largest public attendance sports event, showcasing the glamour, the magic and the spectacle of historic sailing ships.
Held each Summer in European waters, The Tall Ships Races bring together a fleet of 70 - 100 vessels from 20 plus countries, including many of the big and glamorous square-rigged ships that look like they have just sailed off a Hollywood set.
Organised by the charity Sail Training International, the events are focused upon the development and education of young people aged 15 - 25 through the sail training experience, regardless of nationality, culture, religion, gender or social background.
The event has been described as the Voyage Of A Lifetime combining four days of activities in each port with racing or cruising-in-company between ports.
