RACES

2007
In 2007, the world's largest and most beautiful sailing ships called in at Szczecin during the Tall Ships Race. Everyone who gathered at the Chrobry Embankment could enjoy:
„Cuauhtemoca”
„lorda Nelsona”
„sedova”
„kruzensterna”
„Dar młodzieży”
„Fryderyka chopina”
The daily fiesta lasting from the morning until late into the night. The 4-day finals involved fun and games, deck tours, an opportunity to talk to crew members, sea-shanty concerts, exhibitions, happenings, performances...
One of the greatest attractions was the Crew Parade: a colourful procession of sailors and residents making its way through the streets of the city, accompanied by brass bands, full of the white caps of sailors, striped shirts and captain's hats.

A month-long cruise around the Baltic Sea, visiting 4 ports along the way, with the grand finale in Szczecin. The first port to be visited by the vessels was Aarhus in Denmark, followed by Helsinki, the capital of Finland. The last stop before Szczecin was Riga in Latvia. We had the opportunity to admire such vessels as:
Staatsraad Lehmkuhl
Cisne Branco
Cuauhtemoc
Gulden Leeuw
Tre Kronor af Stockholm
Mir
...and finally, Szczecin became a sailing hub once more.
The 2013 edition of the regatta was organised with even more panache than in 2007. Two river banks were joined to double the available area.
There were two amusement parks, and three stages for concerts played by artists of the ESKA Music Awards and the star of the event, Nelly Furtado.
About 100 sailing ships and yachts called in at our port, with the event attracting about 2.5 million visitors.
The finale was immediately followed by the 6th Fireworks Festival: PYROMAGIC 2013 and the electronic music festival: Szczecin Music Live 2013.
