The Tall Ships Races 2021 sees the fleet return to the Baltic Sea!
The Tall Ships Races 2021 takes place over 4 legs, will see the fleet race 1500 nautical miles and is sure to have plenty to celebrate. The first port of call will be Klaipeda in Lithuania, a city which first welcomed the races in 2009 and has become a regular participant ever since. After Klaipeda, The Tall Ships Races 2021 fleet will then race north to St Petersburg in Russia before the cruise-in-company takes them west to Tallin in Estonia. From there they'll continue heading west with another race leg, taking them to the penultimate event in Mariehamn, Finland before they race south to the finale in Szczecin, Poland, another port that now regularly welcomes the races.
The The Tall Ships Races is the largest annual event organised by Sail Training International. It's an summer series held in European waters where ports along the route will host festivals that can be expected to bring between 200,000 and 1 million visitors over 3 to 4 days. Sports, social, and cultural activities will be planned for the thousands of crew members, whilst the highlight of any festival is the crew parade which sees participants from all over the world come together to take over the streets.
