The Brazilian Navy organizes Velas Latinoamérica 2022, a major international maritime event with tall ships from Brazil, Argentina, Colombia, Ecuador, Peru, and Uruguay. It was first organized in 2010 and is repeated at 4-years-intervals. This edition started on February 13, 2022, in Rio de Janeiro. The tall ships will sail through the seas of South America and the Caribbean. A tall ship is a large, traditionally-rigged sailing vessel.
In 2022 Brazil is celebrating the bicentennial of Brazil’s Independence. This is why the honor of coordinating Velas Latinoamérica 2022 has been entrusted to the Brazilian Navy.
