The first leg of the Tall Ships Races 2016 is nearly behind us. And while the ships compete in the first race, you will prepare for the next race, which starts in Lisbon, July 25. The ships will be at Santa Apolónia Quay, which you can see on the map. You can see how to get there and keep track of where Christian Radich is.


Lisbon and Cadiz

There is a lot going on in Lisbon during the weekend, and we recommend everyone to see some of the festivities.

You can read about the festivities in Cadiz (only in Spanish). If you will stay some nights in Cadiz, we hope you will join the crew parade on July 29.


When the ship leaves Lisbon, each trainee will be assigned to one of three watch teams which have 4 hours on duty and 8 hours off – both day and night. You can read more about the job you do as trainee on our website. Have you not received our handbook, please contact us at and we will send you one.


What should I pack?

We are in southern waters, so you don’t need gloves or too warm clothes. But  even here, the most important thing to remember when packing is clothes that are waterproof, windproof and good shoes. We enclose the packing and information list.


Have you forgotten anything?

Have you given us all the information we need? If you’ve changed your passport after you booked the voyage, please send us the new passport number. If you are over 70 years old, you must send us a medical certificateif you haven’t done so already.


Please use the #christianradich when posting from the regatta on Instagram, and you can follow us on Facebook.


We are looking forward to welcome you on board the Christian Radich!
