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.
Following four days of joyous celebrations in Cádiz, Spain, the Tall Ships race fleet will embark upon 12 days of sailing, with a comprehensive mix of competition and exploration on offer for you to enjoy…
Unlike the majority of the Tall Ships Races race legs, Race 2 in 2020 will not be finishing in the final destination port. Instead, the race will finish off the coast of southern Portugal and be followed by a Cruise-in-Company. Throughout this cruise, the tall and small ships will have the opportunity to stop in a number of ports who will greet the crews with festivities and celebrations.
This voyage is the perfect chance to experience all that Portugal and Spain have to offer. You’ll find wonderful landscapes, natural reserves, amazing bays, safe anchorages, historic ports, diverse dining, cultural experiences, and much more.

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 person challenge and social event. If you sign up for the challenge on Blue Clipper 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.
