|From 4th-7th May, the city of Cadiz will host
the Tall Ships 2000 regatta to celebrate the arrival of the new millennium.
My sincere thanks go to the International Sail Training Association (ISTA) which, in conjunction with the American Sail Training Association (ASTA), is the key organizing body of this great nautical event, for giving our city the honour of holding such a special event in our waters. We share this honour with the cities of Southampton, Genoa, Bermuda, Boston, Halifax and Amsterdam, to whose citizens and organizing committees I send a warm greeting.
I would like to express my appreciation for the tremendous help and cooperation in the organization of the regatta received from the Port Authority of the Bay of Cadiz, the Spanish Navy and all those actively participate in this great undertaking, to which all the citizens of cadiz are invited.
I encourage everyone, especially the crews, to join in the high spirits of the people of Cadiz, who are sure to show them the hospitality and friendship that all visitors to the city receive
