Tall Ships Races

Seeing so many Tall Ships together on the starting line is an extraordinary sight!

All the participating ships are in the harbor and you will have time to visit our opponents and to experience the activities that the harbor has organised for the crew. A race is appealing for the true sail-fans who are not afraid to get their hands dirty. There will be some fanatic sailing: continuously reefing and shaking the reefs, hoisting the sails and taking them down when the force and direction of the wind requires this, day in and day out. Although all the ships are different, they are a match for each other due to the different ratings. That means that you do not have to finish first to win the race. Because the race covers a relative small area, the chances are high that we will regularly spot other ships around us. Two times a day we will be briefed through the radio on the position of the other ships and by noting down the positions in the map we will now if we did well or not in the past hours.

A perfect opportunity for sailors aged 15 - 25 years to sail in an international group and see and meet the crew of other sailingships as well. Here comes the summer of a life time. Some of these voyages are also perfect for sailors who want to feel the atmosphere on board or have a sense of sailing before joining for a longer voyage.
