The Tall Ships Races 2013
As the first ships sail into the Szczecin harbor and everyone gets ready for the upcoming excitement, let us take a moment to sum up what the event actually means to us.
Having in mind our experience and extensive portfolio when it comes to providing high quality event solutions, and the fact that we are Szczecin through and through - born and raised - we were chosen to provide a range of geodesic domes by the organizers of this year's finals of the Tall Ships Races - a spectacular event with a rich and half-a-century long tradition.
The first Tall Ships' race was held in 1956. It was a race of 20 of the world's remaining large sailing ships organized by Bernard Morgan, a London lawyer. The race was from Torquay, Devon to Lisbon, and was meant to be a last farewell to the era of the great sailing ships. Public interest was so intense, however, that race organizers founded the Sail Training International association to direct the planning of future events. Since then Tall Ships' Races have occurred annually in various parts of the world, with millions of spectators. Today, the race attracts more than a hundred ships, among these some of the largest sailing ships in existence, like the Portuguese Sagres
For the purpose of the event, we have provided nine structures set up throughout the event and packed to the brim with different features such as AC, lighting, branding, aluminum-glass doors, trussing, furnishings, high quality flooring systems. Almost each and every single member of our classics range has its representative at the event. Even though we always put in a lot of effort into each and every event we do, setting our domes up on home ground definitely strikes a different chord.
Having said that - we do take this event as personal as we can, that is why we have created a special page dedicated solely to the finals of the Tall Ships Races and with the added purpose of creating the biggest family album from the whole experience.
