An international fleet of tall ships takes over the city of Río de Janeiro in Brazil for Velas LatinoAmérica Río de Janeiro 2018. As a part of the Velas LatinoAmérica 2018 series it’s all about strengthening bonds between the many Navies and nations participating, an idea that extends beyond the 1500+ crew members to the many thousands of visitors expected to descend on the city for a celebration like no other.
It’s a quite unique opportunity for the general public to step aboard so many of the worlds most beautiful naval tall ships – so far at least 12 Class A vessels from 11 nations have registered their interest and our recommendation for Velas LatinoAmérica Río de Janeiro 2018 is of course Cisne Branco of the Brazilian Navy, a ship guaranteed to be in full festival swing for her home event.
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.
