Tall Ships’ Races - accommodations
The biggest sailing ship event of them all will once again be landing in Turku in the summer of 2017!
Turku has previously hosted the Tall Ships Races in 1996, 2003 and 2009, and the Tall Ships Regatta in 2011, when Turku was the European Capital of Culture.
The 2017 Tall Ships Races will start in Halmstad, Sweden, from which the ships will sail to Kotka. From there, the ships will set sail for Turku followed by Klaipeda, Lithuania, and Szczecin, Poland, which is the final port of the event.
The Tall Ships Races has attracted a half a million visitors from all over the country and Europe each time it has been held.
