SCF Black Sea Tall Ships Regatta 2016

    Organised by Sail Training International


The SCF Black Sea Tall Ships Regatta 2016 is brought to us again, following its huge success in 2014, thanks to the title sponsorship of Sovcomflot (one of the world's largest shipping companies) and its promotion of international youth sailing.

The Black Sea offers beautiful coastline, maritime traditions, friendly people, wonderful nature, vibrant cities and historic architecture. The area has become a significant tourist attraction thanks to government support from the countries around it.

People of all abilities can take part in the Regatta, including those with mental and physical disabilities, providing they are over the age of 15. Trainees may join for one or both of the race legs and all ships entering the Regatta are particularly encouraged to recruit trainees between the ages of 15 and 25.
