Product Description


It was billed as "the tall ships' race of the century" and "the youth event of the millennium year", and so it was. Seventy-five sail training "tall ships" from 25 countries took part in the 10,000 mile race. 7,000 young people, aged between 15 and 25, and from nearly 30 countries, made up most of the crews. Some 14 million people visited the seven ports when the fleet was in. And media coverage worldwide was colossal - print, radio and television coverage in over 30 countries, and the Tall Ships 2000 web-site peaked at over one million "hits" a week. This is the official Tall Ships 2000 Race book, covering all seven ports - Southampton, Genoa, Cadiz, Bermuda, Boston, Halifax and Amsterdam. Three race legs - Southampton - Cadiz, Boston - Halifax, Halifax - Amsterdam. Designed to convey the spirit of the event in chronological order in a special year, the photographs set out to capture many aspects of the race and unique moments of the four and a half month odyssey circumnavigating the North Atlantic.
