The Tall Ships’ Races 2024 – Valborg from Helsinki sails at the Baltic Sea


Come along!

Sail training ship s/v Valborg is preparing for the 2024 The Tall Ships’ Races -event. The Tall Ships’ Races was last seen in Helsinki in 2013. Valborg participated in the race most recently in 2017.

s/v Valborg was built in 1948 as a cargo ship. Since remaining too small and old fashioned for cargo transportation, she became the property of the scouts in the 70’s. Her interior was rebuilt for overnight staying. Valborg was completely renovated and equipped for open sea sailing in the late 90’s. Valborg now provides unforgettable adventures for the youth.

Days to go!
