Riga, the historic capital of Latvia, was the venue for the annual International Sail Training & Tall Ships Conference, 16-17 November 2012. Thanks to our sponsors - the City of Riga, the Host Ports for the Tall Ships Races 2013, Radisson Blu Latvija and airBaltic.

Copies of the presentations are available here and you can also view films of many of the sessions on YouTube.

Sail Training International's annual conference is the only global conference for sail training.  Its range of tailored programmes and presentations aim to meet the needs and interests of sail training programme providers, ports already contracted to host a Sail Training International event, trainees and other key stakeholders.  It also provides a great opportunity to network.  

The 2013 conference will be held in Aalborg, Denmark – further details will be published soon.
