The Tall Ships Races is the biggest annual sailing race of the year. The 2017 edition will be the 61st event and is scheduled to take place on the Baltic Sea, in 5 ports in 4 different countries. Join Race 1 from Sweden to Finland. Take part in opening celebrations, meet your fellow trainees, then wave goodbye to spectators on land and set course across the Baltic Sea. Expect a warm welcome in Kotka, with Crew Parties, parades and many other activities.
As a Windseeker Trainee on board Vega Gamleby you will be a part of the crew, meaning you will take an active part is sailing the Ship. You’ll be hoisting sails, steering, climbing the masts (voluntarily), practicing seamanship skills and learning the art of navigation, guided by the professional crew. And you will sail to win the race!
