From the 21st to 24th of September 2013 Barcelona plays host to the Mediterranean Tall Ship Regatta. This year 30 tall ships are going to race from Barcelona via Toulon (France) to La Spezia (Italy). In the days leading up to the race the ships are moored in Barcelona’s Port Vell (old port).

Most of the ships are open to visitors. If you fancy taking part in the race, one of the participants is offering the chance of sailing to France with them. If you’re interested, they leave on the 24th of September and the fare is €350 per person for the 4 day cruise.
