Race 2 of the Tall Ships Races 2017 will see you sail from the historic Finnish city of Turku, south through the Baltic Sea, and on to the port city of Klaipėda, Lithuania.
After sampling the delights and hospitality of Turku, your voyage through the Baltic Sea will take you south, over 500 miles, to your destination port, Klaipėda.
On this passage, you’ll experience some of the most beautiful sailing conditions in this expansive sea, which is protected from the Atlantic Ocean. Long days, thanks to your geographical position, will give you more than enough time to get to know your ships and your crewmates.
Sailing conditions in the Baltic Sea have the potential to be ideal for racing, which will provide a fantastic introduction to competitive sailing. Over five days, you’ll learn everything you need to become an essential member of your ship’s crew. You’ll also discover the benefits of working in a cohesive team, and uncover strengths and talents that you never knew you had!
