Novorossiysk (RU) - Sochi (RU)

18 September - 24 September 2016

From Novorossiysk, all participating Tall Ships will embark together, creating a ‘Parade of Sails’. From the deck of ATYLA you will have the most fantastic view of the other ships as you sail south together, across the beautiful calm waters of the Black Sea, towards the Russian port of Sochi. Open for all ages, minimum age 15 years.


The host of one of the biggest Russian sea ports, Novorossiysk is an important city on the Black Sea coast with the first signs of settlement dating back to the V century. The balmy, almost Mediterranean weather and picturesque landscapes make it a perfect holiday destination. Visit the Square of Heroes and the Cruiser Mikhail Kutuzov Museum for your military history, or go to the observation deck 7 winds for an unforgettable view of the city.

Sochi is a Russian city on the Black Sea coast with a rare in the region subtropical climate - palm trees covered in snow is not a rare sight in there. There are over 100 different ethnicities living in Sochi, making it a perfect mix of cultures and languages. It is a popular tourist destination, with many attractions: parks and gardens, beaches and ski resorts, monumental Stalinist architecture and Byzantine-period ruins. Go out of the city for hikes in one of the national parks.
