The Tall Ships Races sailing event is coming to Turku in late July 2017. The races promise to be one of the most impressive events of the centenary of Finland's independence.
In Turku, the fact that the tall ships can be brought all the way into the city centre lends a wholly unique atmosphere to the event. All the participating ships will be anchored in a very small area on both sides of the River Aura, which divides the city. As a result, all services will be available nearby, contributing to the event's dense and lively atmosphere.
