Tall Ships Handbook, Paperback / softback Book


Around 200 sailing vessels take part in the Tall Ships series of races, which travel the world each year.

They regularly attract up to five million spectators, easily making them the largest public attendance of any event in the world.

When the ships are in port, they are often open to the public to view them, from period Victorian sailing ships to brand-new sailing vessels with every modern convenience.

One of the challenges for spectators is working out which ship is which and the Tall Ships Handbook is a handy guidebook that makes it easy to identify each vessel, and also gives some background to the history and ownership.

The Tall Ships Handbook is the ideal guide for the Tall Ships Races.
