Tall Ships Race, Leith Docks, July 1995

Tall Ships Race, Leith Docks, July 1995

About this memory

The Tall Ships’ Races are run every summer in European waters. The races are now run by Sail Training International, an organisation that evolved from the original Sail Training International Race Committee which was founded to organise the first race in 1956. The race was founded to give young people from different countries the opportunity to race sailing ships at sea. The race attracts both impressive ‘square-riggers’ and smaller ships.
