The Tall Ships Races 2015
Date: 2 Jul 2015 - 5 Jul 2015
Venue: Belfast Harbour and Titanic Quarter
From 2 to 5 July 2015 tall ships from across the globe will anchor in Belfast for the start of The Tall Ships Races 2015.
Organised by Sail Training International, The Tall Ships Races will be welcomed by the Lidl Belfast Titanic Maritime Festival. For more information about the event, go to the Tall Ships Belfast website.
This is the third time that Belfast has hosted the races, having previously welcomed the ships in 1991 and 2009.
Both previous visits were incredibly popular; in 2009 around 800,000 spectators came to the four-day event, when a flotilla of 40 ships berthed along the city's quays.
In 2015 we hope to attract 500,000 people, with another 500,000 watching the ships arrive and leave along the Northern Ireland and Irish coasts. The ships will be berthed in and around Belfast Harbour and the Titanic Quarter area.
We are proud to be the lead partner for this world class event. Watch our video for a brief summary of the 2009 Tall Ships success story and what to expect in 2015.
