The Tall Ships' Races "Gdynia 2009"

Who knows what fate human race would have faced if it had not been for navigation. Navigation was appreciated by the ancient Egyptians, Phoenicians, Greeks, Vikings... But for ships, there would not have been any trade development, new lands would not have been discovered, the wars would have been different. A Romans' maxim "Navigare necesse est" ("To sail is necessary") reflected perfectly the necessity of navigation. Through centuries, the sailing ships prevailed on the seas. Even though they were majestic and gorgeous and driven by the power of the wind, working there was not easy. Not until the 19th century were they ousted by ships propelled by steam power. In this day and age, sailing is, above all, sport and hobby. The training vessels are used to train future sailors.
The races of the tallest and prettiest ships attracts masses of admirers of sea and all those who have dreamt of remote, adventurous sea journeys. During such events as the one in Gdynia, everybody has a chance to set their foot on board of a real sailing ship.
Regatta "The Tall Ships' Races"

The idea of the races dates back to the 30's of the 20th century. First regatta took place in 1956. Since the 70's the races have been ran annually. Aside from sizeable sailing ships, the competition is also open to smaller racing yachts. Gdynia received the races three times in 1974, 1992, and 2003. There are over a hundred of units, mainly training ones, participating in this year's regatta on the Baltic Sea. The races lead from Gdynia to St. Petersburg. The next port hosting the flotilla is Turku in Finland, and the last one Lithuanian Klaipeda. The races take place during the first and third phase whereas the second phase is devoted to cooperation, exchange and mutual meetings of the crews. Each port receiving the regatta has multitude of attractions - exhibitions, concerts, fairs, crew parades and first of all, the final Grand Parade of Sail.
New Stamp and envelope on FDC

On the occasion of the Tall Ships' Races, Poczta Polska issued a stamp in block. The stamp presents a silhouette of "Dar Mlodziezy" against the panorama of the port of Ddansk. "Dar Mlodziezy" is a frigate built in 1982 that belongs to the Naval Academy of Gdynia. The FDC envelope presents the ships as though they were observed through field glasses - equipment worth having during such an event as the races in Gdynia. The issue is accompanied by an occasional date stamp in use in Gdynia 1 Post Office.

The most beautiful Polish tall ship Dar Młodzieży “The Gift of Youth” set sail for a voyage around the world to commemorate the 100th anniversary of Poland regaining its independence.
"Tell the world how beautiful Poland is" - This was the message from the Polish Minister of Maritime Economy and Inland Navigation during the departure ceremony of The Independence Cruise #RejsNiepodległości

The year 2018 is a very special and important one for Poland. One hundred years ago in November 1918, after 123 years of foreign rule, captivity and oppression, Poland regained its independence. To commemorate this historical event the Ministry of Maritime Economy and Inland Navigation, the Gdynia Maritime University and the Pallottine Missionary Foundation Salvatti.pl. launched the Independence Cruise to promote Poland’s history and culture around the world. The journey began on May 20th 2018 from a port in Gdynia, in the Northern Poland. The legendary Tall Ship will sail around the world visiting 22 ports in 18 countries. In January 2019 the Ship will dock in Panama for World Youth Day. The Independence Cruise is an event directly referring to the historic cruise of Dar Pomorza, which circumnavigated the globe in 1934 and 1935. “The Gift of Youth” and close to one thousand young Poles are our ambassadors throughout this journey. Besides the promotional advantages this offers, the representatives of Poland’s government and economic world in each port are meeting with their counterparts to strengthen relationships with international partners.
“The Gift of Youth” was built in 1982 at Gdansk Shipyard and owned by the Gdynia Maritime Academy since then, she replaced the beautiful and legendary Dar Pomorza which had trained future officers of merchant and fishing fleets for over fifty years.
