An international fleet of tall ships takes over the city of Klaipeda in Lithuania for Tall Ships Klaipeda 2017, a part of The Tall Ships Races 2017. This event will offer a fantastic opportunity for visitors to step aboard many beautiful tall ships from across the world while thousands of crew members meet and compete with their counterparts, bringing international friendship and culture to the forefront of what is sure to be an event like no other.
Having hosted the races twice before, the city of Klaipeda will no doubt be ready to celebrate once again. You’ll be sure to step aboard one of the many Class A ships in attendance, but we also recommend you take the time to see those smaller vessels on show too!
After Klaipeda the tall ships will head to Szczecin in Poland for the finale of The Tall Ships Races 2017.
Did You Know? Many of these vessels offer an experience known as ‘Sail Training’, a course in personal and professional development championed by youth organisations, multi-national corporations and even navies from across the world.
