The Tall Ships Races is the largest sailing event in Europe with more than half a million visitors. The event is also part of Finland’s 100th-anniversary celebration which took place in Turku in 2017 and hosted 72 sailing ships over the weekend.

There have been also plenty of activities, concerts, and restaurants along the Aura river and there will be also a firework on Saturday. I also had the opportunity to walk on the deck of the Shabab Oman II, which is an 87 meters long full-rigged ship.
