Velas LatinoAmérica Punta Arenas 2018

Sailing Latin America 2018

An international fleet of tall ships takes over the city of Punta Arenas in Chile for Velas LatinoAmérica Punta Arenas 2018.

As a part of the Velas LatinoAmérica 2018 series it’s all about strengthening bonds between the many Navies and nations participating, an idea that extends beyond the 1500+ crew members to the many thousands of visitors expected to descend on the city for a celebration like no other.

It’s a quite unique opportunity for the general public to step aboard so many of the worlds most beautiful naval tall ships - so far at least 12 Class A vessels from 11 nations have registered their interest and our recommendation for Velas LatinoAmérica Punta Arenas 2018 is of course Esmeralda of the Chilean Navy, a ship guaranteed to be in full festival swing for her home event.

   Velas LatinoAmérica 2018

Velas LatinAmerica 2018 will see a fleet of at least 12 Class A naval tall ships come together to sail over 12,000 nautical miles across 157 days, visiting 18 festivals in 12 South America countries.

The regatta - which includes a rounding of Cape Horn - aims primarily to strengthen bonds between the Navies and nations participating. Whilst the festivities in port play a key role in this, the time at sea is also significant in that crew exchanges will be held between the many participating tall ships, a challenge found to be significant in developing professional, intellectual and cultural awareness among the 1,500+ crew members who take part.
