Join us!

The pandemic has made it impossible to organise the traditional Tall Ships Races. Despite that, Tallinn, Klaipeda and Szczecin would like to invite you to an exceptional event – the Baltic Regatta 2021!
Races will take place from 16 July until 1 August. The competition will start in Tallinn, continuing in Klaipėda, Lithuania and finish in Szczecin.

Although the global pandemic forced the cancellation of the long-awaited the Tall Ships Races 2021 in the Baltic Sea, and drastically adjusted the plans of sailing ships and host ports, three ports – Tallinn (EE), Klaipeda (LT) and Szczecin (PL) – decided to join forces and organize the Baltic Regatta 2021.

We sincerely invite all sailing ships to accept our invitation and participate in the two-stage (2 leg) regatta, and provide an opportunity for young people, who have been selected to participate in the Trainees program, to sail your ships and experience an extraordinary adventure of a lifetime.

Three cities from three different countries: Tallinn, Klaipeda and Szczecin, have not given up and are still in the game. We decided to organize the regatta anyway with the following two legs: Tallinn – Klaipeda and Klaipeda – Szczecin.

Therefore, we want to invite you to visit our ports. Be sure that our hospitable quays, local communities and visitors are waiting for you. Without you, your tall ships and yachts and your crews, we will not succeed with the events we have planned. We all miss sailing ships and yachts at our quays, the abundance of masts, fluttering flags, and shanty music.

The port cities are ready to take the sailing ships and exempt them from all entry fees, and provide mooring berths, electricity, drinking water free of charge, and offer a program to the crews.

We are waiting for you with our hearts open!

Tallinn – 16-18.07

Tallinn not only offers extensive harbour infrastructure, but also convenient and quick connections to an international airport, bus station, passenger port and railway station. Interesting spots include one of the best maritime museums in Europe, which is surrounded by many restaurants and shopping centres.

Klaipeda – 23-25.07

Klaipeda is the former capital of Prussia, previously known as “Memel”. The sea port connects Lithuania with Scandinavia and other countries. The Akamena-Danė river, which flows through the city, splits it into two parts: the modern New Town to the north and the Old Town to the south. Interesting places worth visiting include the cobbled Old Town with the red brick castle tower and the famous clock museum.

Szczecin – 30.07-01.08

Szczecin attracts tourists with its sailing atmosphere, proximity to the sea and multicultural past. Thanks to its geographic location, Szczecin, the capital of West Pomerania, is easily accessible by sea, air, and roads. The city is located on the junction of all modes of transport. The main reasons include nature tourism, water tourism and recently culture tourism, in particular cultural events organized by the Szczecin Philharmonic House, Dialogue Centre Upheavals, Opera at the Castle and the Museum of Technology.
