Leila:
Klaipeda (LT) - Szczecin (PL)

31 July - 07 August 2017

New price! The Tall Ships Races 2017, race 3. Upon boarding Leila you will wave goodbye to the Lithuanian port city of Klaipeda before setting course for western Poland. You will race other Tall Ships, Small Ships and Yachts across the Baltic Sea in a friendly competition. Finally, you will reach your destination where you can expect a very warm welcome. Szczecin has prepared crew parties, parades, concerts and of course: an award ceremony. Relax on land and meet young sailors from different vessels. Open to Windseekers between 16 and 25 years old; over 25 at request.

Ports

Klaipéda is a city in Lithuania on the Baltic Sea coast. The city has long 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.
