In January, the City of Tallinn, Estonia, signed the Membership Agreement of the Baltic Sail Association:
Tallinn, the capital city of Estonia, is an ideal destination if you are looking for a combination of modern comforts, a thriving culinary scene and a vibrant cultural landscape in a truly unique, historical setting: the renowned Old Town is a designated UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Visit the annual sea festival – Tallinn Maritime Days in July happening in Old City Harbour, Port Noblessner, Seaplane Harbour, Haven Kakumäe and Pirita yacht harbour. Tallinn beautifully connects the old with the new. You will experience great museums, taste amazing food, and stroll around vibrant districts. Three of the ports are located within walking distance from the medieval Old Town. This small, relatively quiet city boasts an impressive 40 km² of parks and forests, 46 km of coastline and has a beautiful 2 km stretch of sandy beach bordering its bay. Visitors can stroll along well-developed seaside promenades, explore the natural beauty of suburban bog trails or take sailing trips to nearby islands.
For the first time Tallinn will host the Tall Ships Races fleet from 15th to 18th July, 2021.

The Baltic Sail Association exists for 24 years now and combines efforts to highlight Baltic maritime traditions. By today the association is having nine member cities and is open minded for new partner cities or other interested bodies.
Main goal of the Baltic Sea Association with the seaport cities – Rostock, Szczecin, Gdansk, Riga, Klaipéda, Nysted, Karlskrona, Turku and now Tallinn – is to preserve traditional vessels, masterpieces of European cultural maritime heritage, representing maritime traditions, in operation for future generations and as a trade mark of the Baltic Sea Region.
