Photopost: The Tall Ships Races 2013 in Riga (43 photos)

Heey, my dear readers ^^ Last weekend I had a chance to visit a great event called The Tall Ships Races 2013 and see awesome sailing ships once again. Last time they were here in 2003 and I still remember how nice it was then. So this time I also couldn't miss it. First I went to city center to see the ships close to me and on Sunday I also went to Mangaļsala to see how they sail to the sea. So enjoy the photos! ^^

  1. Beautiful!! Boom & Gary of the Vermilon River, Canada.

  2. Such mighty ships! I heard about these ships in Helsinki but for some reason didn't realize you had them as well. :)

    1. Those ships really were awesome, on photos they even don't look as mighty as they were in reality :)

  3. Beautiful shots, Icegirl,

    Here's a great tall ships directory of many of the huge Class A vessels that participated in the 2013 Race - like Christian Radich, Kruzenshtern and Cuauhtemoc.
