Black Sea Regatta

The SCF Black Sea Regatta, 30th April until the 28th May 2014, organised by Sail Training International and sponsored by Sovcomflot, will put the Black Sea on the map for the world’s most notable Tall Ships.

The Regatta will visit Varna, Bulgaria; Novorossiysk and Sochi in Russia and Constanta, Romania. The Black Sea has plenty of attractions to lure the tall ships and their crews: a beautiful coastline, maritime traditions, friendly people, wonderful nature, vibrant cities and historic architecture.

Romania's Mercea is taking part, as part of her 75-year jubilee celebrations in 2014, along with Adornate and Apolodor. Bulgaria will be represented by Kaliakra and Royal Helena.

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.

Visitors and participants of this unprecedented sailing event will become a part of various unforgettable activities such as: magnificent parade of sails, crew parades along the city streets, VIP receptions, entertaining activities for children, award ceremonies and incredible fireworks! During the 4-day stay in each port all the vessels will be open for the public.
