Tall Ships Regatta: The Three Festivals


The Tall Ships Regattas are nautical races organized by the Sail Training International / Sail on Board association to encourage international friendship and the training of young people in sailing and navigation. Regattas are organized every year all over the world, consisting of stages of several hundred nautical miles, with festivities between each stage. More than half of the crew of each vessel participating in the races is composed of young people aged 15 to 25.

Bordeaux is the final destination in the Tall Ships Regatta known as The Three Festivals. It leaves Liverpool on 28 May, stops in Dublin between 1 and 4 June and then sails to Bordeaux, arriving between 12 and 13 June, so as to participate from 14 to 18 June in the Bordeaux Fête le Vin festival. On board the ships will be the regular crews accompanied by trainees, aged 15 to 25, learning the joys of navigating the high seas!
