STS F.Chopin - The Tall Ships' Races

Big and exciting initiative of Mateusz Potempski - the organizer of the participation of the STS F.Chopin in The Tall Ships' Races Baltic 2007.


Let start to consider a meeting of reasonable amount of Birigs. They sail and take part in the Tall Ships' Races but to see all of them collected one time in one place would create unforgettable recollections for young sailors as well for the public.
