Tallinn Maritine Days July 13-15, 2012

The big free of charge family event at Tallinn Bay and Tallinn Harbour.  This sea-faring festival involves all sorts of water-related attractions including boat trips, concerts, and activities for kids.

Between 16 and 18 July, Tallinn’s Maritime Days – the biggest free family event in Tallinn this summer – will be bringing a sailing regatta, a swimming competition and an amazing boat dance show with a police and Border Guard flying squad to Tallinn Bay. This year’s festival will be bigger and offer more seaside entertainment than ever before. On Saturday 17 July attendees on the waterfront promenade will be able to cheer on the competitors in a major swimming competition, while on that Saturday as well as Sunday 18 July bystanders will enjoy a regatta of Olympic 49ers. In addition to working with the Estonian Swimming Federation and the Estonian Yachting Union, the 2010 festival will also involve three harbours: events will not only take place at Lennusadam and Reisisadam, but also at Peetri harbour. Here in the Noblessner foundry building the Nargen festival will be holding a summer symphony concert on the evening of Friday 16 July.
