International sailing regatta "The Tall Ships Races 2013" in Riga, Latvia
Riga

The sailing event will bring back these ancient feelings, which is one of its aims. Origin of "The Tall Ships Races" dates back to 1956, when sailing enthusiasts came to a conclusion that tall ships have irreversibly yielded to the modern ships and in honour to the tall ships organised a regatta from England to Portugal with the largest remaining tall ships from the whole world.

Since then the sailing event has visited many European and world ports and one of its main tasks is to train and educate young seamen in sailing, wherewith a strong rule is that half of each crew must be at the age between 15 to 25 years.
