The Tall Ships Races

The Tall Ships Races are organised every year by Sail Training International, whose members offer the Sail Training experience world-wide.  ASTO is the national UK Sail Training organisation and is a member of Sail Training International.

Each year ships from around the world gather together to participate in challenging offshore and ocean racing, and to share and enjoy the ensuing shoreside festivities and celebrations.  These events are youth-focused and bring a huge spectacle to the ports they call at. ASTO members regularly take part and you too could be part of this massive international spectacle.

2014 will see two race series:  The summer race in Skandinavia, and the Falmouth to Royal Greenwich Tall Ships Regatta, exclusively in British ports. Funding is available to take part in the latter.
