TALL SHIPS REGATTA 2010

The Historical Seas Tall Ships Regatta takes place in May and early June 2010, concluding in time for participating vessels to make passage to northern Europe to take part in The Tall Ships Races.

Leg one of the Historical Seas Tall Ships Regatta will follow the route, according to legend, of Jason and the Argonauts in search of the Golden Fleece from Volos, Greece (9-12 May) through the Dardanelles into the Black Sea. The next port of call will be Varna, Bulgaria (21-24 May), departing on the country’s National Day (24 May). From there the fleet will race to Istanbul, Turkey (27-30 May), where the Regatta will be a centrepiece of the city’s celebrations of its designation as European Capital of Culture in 2010. From there the fleet will cruise and race to Lavrion, Greece (4-7 June) close to Athens and a wealth of other historical and cultural sites in the region of Attica....etc...see :
