Tall ship races and regattas


The Bulgarian Tall Ship Royal Helena was built in 2009 with the intention to promote Sail Training. Despite her young age, the Royal Helena has already taken part in many journeys and competed in the 2016 Black Sea Tall Ships Regatta. Join the Ship to help create more exciting memories!

Royal Helena is a three-masted Bulgarian barquentine with a hull made of steel and a teak-covered deck. She can accommodate up to 37 trainees for multiple-day journeys, and as many as 120 for day cruises. Being very new, the Ship combines the experience of sailing on traditional Tall Ships with all the modern comforts and safety features. Step on board to find the latest navigation equipment, air conditioning in cabins and water desalination plant, among others.

Royal Helena can accommodate up to 37 trainees for long-term journeys. You can choose among different types of cabins, with private 2-3 persons ones, or bigger ones, which can sleep 7 or 14 people. Each cabin is equipped with a shower, WC and individual A/C system.
