* FULLY BOOKED * Three Festivals Tall Ships Regatta 2018: Race 2. The impressive Samuel Beckett Bridge will open to let Atyla and the other ships out of Dublin, before they’ll sail south. You will race other Ships across the Bay of Biscay so expect to do some good open-ocean sailing. Then you’ll sail up the Gironde Estuary, surrounded by impressive nature and beautiful urban areas. You will see little islands in the middle of the Estuary, some of them cultivated with vines, some completelly virgin. You will reach Bordeaux just in time to enjoy all of the harbour activities, such as Crew Parade, Crew Party and fireworks. Open for all Windseekers, minimum age 15 years.

Ports

Dublin is the capital and largest city of Ireland. It is located on the east coast, at the mouth of the River Liffey. Founded as a Viking settlement, the Kingdom of Dublin became Ireland's main city. The city has many landmarks and monuments dating back hundreds of years that you can visit. Walk through one of the many parks Dublin offers; it has more green spaces per square kilometer than any other European capital city. Try a Guiness in an Irish pub, brewed in Dublin since 1759. Cheers!

Bordeaux is famous for its wine, but the city itself also has a lot to offer. The cathedral, the Place des Quinconces and the Port de La Lune will have you gazing in amazement. The city also has a diverse cultural agenda and a bustling nightlife. To the south of the city you’ll find sandy beaches with enormous dunes that offer great surfing conditions on the waves of the Atlantic ocean. Every two years Bordeaux organizes a harbor festival, with many Tall Ships visiting.
