The Tall Ships Races - Szczecin's representation awarded
The Sailing Representation of Szczecin on board the Fryderyk Chopin came second in the Tall Ship Races 2016 regatta. Moreover, for the third time in a row, the navy blue and dark red crew returned with the prestigious STI Friendship Trophy - an award granted to the friendliest crew.
The friendliest team (receiving the Friendship Trophy) is chosen by the members of all the crews taking part in the regatta. Vessels' crews from all over the world again decided that this prestigious prize belonged to the young sailors representing Szczecin on board the Fryderyk Chopin. It is remarkable that the navy blue and dark red crew was awarded this trophy for the third time in a row!
The prize is only the icing on the cake. The crew of the Fryderyk Chopin came second in class A, in a group with the largest sailing ships. It is not the first time the crew of Chopin has been among the first three best ships in the regatta. In addition, during the first stage (Antwerp-Lisbon) the representation of Szczecin won the crew parade.
