International Tall Ships Race 3 2020.

Tall Ship Races & Regattas

A Coruna, Spain - Dunkirk, France

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.

The third and final race of the Tall Ships Races 2020 will take you from the beautiful Atlantic coast of A Coruña to the north of France and historic Dunkirk.

Get ready for a real ocean adventure as you sail across the world-famous Bay of Biscay and through the English channel. Strategy will be key during your ten-day voyage across one of the wildest seas in the world on the eastern coast of the Atlantic Ocean. Following in the footsteps of sailors of old, you will have the perfect opportunity to experience the awe-inspiring nature of life at sea.

Dunkirk, France, will provide a magnificent welcome as the final race port of the Tall Ships Races 2020. Here, you can expect a truly electrifying four days of celebrations as the race series reaches its climax and Dunkirk hosts a Tall Ships Races event for the first time.

Voyage Description

On a sailing voyage we never use the word itinerary, as skippers will always be aiming for the best sailing and shore landings for the forecast and most idyllic or sheltered anchors and ports. They are as keen as you to include some of the highlights describe, but you have to go with Mother Nature, not fight her. The description below is based on what we think might be possible, based on past trips, or experience, but nothing is guaranteed on a sailing voyage. If the following voyage description is not fulfilled for any reason, Maybe Sailing and Maybe Sailing Youth Initiative cannot be held responsible.

The International Tall Ships Races are a unique opportunity for individuals aged 15 to 25 years to be involved and take part in a world-class event. On Blue Clipper and all other participating ships, at least 50% of the crew will be young people.  Blue Clipper is happy for over 25-year-old crew to sign up for the adventure of this tall ship’s race as long as they are prepared to enter into the spirit of what is essentially a young persons challenge and social event. If you sign up for the challenge on Maybe you will be joining hundreds of other Ships and thousands of under 25-year-olds to pit your wits at sea, in one of the greatest races on earth. You really are part of the crew and absolutely vital to the running of the ship.

Grueling sailing, night watches, sunburn, salt spray, green waves over the deck, tacking and gybing your way to the finish line. Awaiting you there are thousands of spectators, well-wishers, parties, parades, fairground rides, and a celebration of Youth and International Friendship like nothing else you can imagine. 3 masted schooner Blue Clipper will be racing in a class with other vessels a similar size, but you will be amongst the bigger tall ships too as you manoeuvre ready for the start, and you still have the close quarters thrill of the chase as the whole tall ships fleets race the same course.
