Every year the European cities of Liverpool, Dublin and Bordeaux each host their own, unmissable events. Among these, key highlights are the International Mersey River Festival, Dublin RiverFest and Bordeaux Wine Festival, three events which will - in 2018 - come together as host ports for one of the largest tall ship regattas of the year, The Three Festivals Tall Ships Regatta 2018.
Sail Training International’s Tall Ships Regattas attract tall ships of all classes to many beautiful locations across Europe each year. The selected ports host festivals that can be expected to bring hundreds of thousands of 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 sure to be the crew parade as participants from all corners of the world come together to take over the streets.
Sail Training International, an organisation for Tall Ships Races, Regattas, Funding and More!
Achieved through the challenge of sailing a tall ship on the high seas, Sail Training is an experiential course in personal and professional development championed for its effectiveness by youth organisations, multi-national corporations and even navies from across the world.
Sail Training International (STI) is a registered charity that focuses on the development and education of young people (aged up to 26) through the challenge of Sail Training. They currently have 29 national Sail Training organisations as members. Every Year Sail Training International organises The Tall Ships Races, a European event that sees as many as 50 tall ships race between major festivals in up to 5 ports. They also organise at least one Tall Ships Regatta annually, a similar event on a slightly smaller scale. To help those aged 15-25 from any country of the world to take part in the annual tall ships races and regattas they offer the Sultanate of Oman Bursary Scheme.
The annual International Sail Training and Tall Ships Conference is also organised by STI, an event that brings together hundreds of delegates from across the international community for 3 days of discussions, seminars, workshops and more to help better future practice.Read More...
