Tall Ships Turku 2017
An international fleet of tall ships takes over the city of Turku in Finland for Tall Ships Turku 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.
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 Turku, The Tall Ships Races 2017 heads south to Klaipeda in Lithuania before the finale in Szczecin, Poland.
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.
