Rating: RaceTrips with a race rating are a fantastic opportunity to take part in a Tall Ships race. Races can attract a diverse fleet of international vessels from up to 30 different countries. And, they can bring up to four million visitors and 400 media representatives to the ports we visit. Nothing can quite prepare you for the unforgettable atmosphere of racing. Picture yourself sailing on a beautiful Tall Ship, way out at sea, with the waves crashing against the hull, no land in sight, the sun rising behind you, and your closest competitor hot on your heels. Races and Regattas are broken down into “legs,” or races. The number of legs depends on how many host ports are taking part – you’ll race from one port to the next. We want everyone who takes part to have fun… but don’t forget that it’s a race, with lots of trophies and prizes up for grabs.
