NO PLACES AVAILABLE ANYMORE- Tall Ships Races 2017: Race 3 Klaipéda-Szczecin. In Klaipéda you will embark on the Challenge Wales and enjoy Crew Parties and other activities with many international crews before setting course for Poland, racing other vessels across the Baltic sea. Arrive in Szczecin and celebrate the ending of the 61st Tall Ships Races – the biggest annual sailing event of the world! Participate in the awards ceremony, parties, parades and multiple other events; exchange sea stories and make friends with young people from many different countries.Open for Windseekers age 16-25 years.
Klaipéda is a city in Lithuania on the Baltic Sea coast. The city has many maritime traditions - it even hosts its own Sea Festival in July! - and its architecture bears influences from several different cultures (French, German, Swedish). Take a walk down the Friedricho pasažas, visit the reconstructed Meridianas ship, find the quirky Golden Mouse sculpture and visit the Clock Museum.
Szczecin in North-Western Poland has a deep commitment to sail training. Discover the Underground City Trails: a network of bunkers from WWII with their unique atmosphere. If you're more of an outdorsy type, take a canoe along the Odra river or explore Bukowe Hills which hide the ruins of old bridges and are home to numerous boars and deer. Visit one of many museums or the Castle of Pomeranian Dukes or the beautiful rose gardens.
