Photographer's Note

* The Sail Training Vessel Kaliakra (Known also as STV Kaliakra, Bulgarian: Калиакра) is a barquentine, built in 1984 at the Gdańsk Shipyard, after the plans of the Polish technical designer Zygmunt Choreń. She is a property of Bulgarian Maritime Training Centre and is operated by Navigation Maritime Bulgare, Bulgaria. The ship's home port is Varna, Bulgaria.

** Another choice my Themes

***Bulgarian sailing boat Kaliakra has set off to the Greek port of Volos, which is the starting point of the 2010 Historical Seas Tall Ships Regatta, which will also include Bulgaria’s largest port Varna.

The Historical Seas Tall Ships Regatta takes place in May and early June 2010. Leg one of the Historical Seas Tall Ships Regatta will follow the route, according to legend, of Jason and the Argonauts in search of the Golden Fleece from Volos, Greece (May 12-15) through the Dardanelles into the Black Sea. The next port of call will be Varna, Bulgaria (May 21-24), departing on the country's National Day (May 24).

From there the fleet will race to Istanbul, Turkey (May 27-30), where the Regatta will be a centrepiece of the city's celebrations of its designation as European Capital of Culture in 2010. From there the fleet will cruise and race to Lavrion, Greece (June 4-7) close to Athens and a wealth of other historical and cultural sites in the region of Attica.

Even though Bulgaria’s Varna is included in the program of the 2010 Tall Ships Regatta, Bulgaria was close to having no representatives in the sea race....etc...
