60 years anniversary Tall Ships Races!

The Tall Ships Races 2016 will be celebrating a diamond anniversary as it will be sixty years since the first Tall Ships race in 1956! Hundreds of Tall Ships, Small Ships and yachts gather each year to compete at sea in an exhilarating journey from country to country. Tall Ships Races (TSR) is the biggest sail race of the year! Join the thousands of sail trainees from all over the world, and embark on an epic Journey that will test your limits. Learn the ropes on deck, meet new people, and work together as a team to perform at your best.
