The theme area gives an overview of the history of the world famous The Tall Ships Races and its connections with Estonia.
The Tall Ships Races is the world’s largest sailing regatta for teaching young people, which attracts tens of thousands of people to explore the sailing ships every year. The fleet of the regatta consists of large sailing ships, historic sailboats, and modern ocean yachts. Almost 10,000 young people from 30 to 40 countries take part in the regatta every year.
The fleet of the Tall Ships Races regatta visited Tallinn in 1992 and it is expected again in 2021. The first sailing offshore regattas were organized in 1956, when historic sailing ships sailed from Torbay, Great Britain to Lisbon, Portugal.
