A Final Parade and Prizes in Cadiz

Posted on: 09.09.23

The historic city of Cadiz burst into life on the second day of celebrations as the crews of the Tall Ships fleet delivered a stunning Crew Parade ahead of the final Prize Giving Ceremony of The Tall Ships Races Magellan-Elcano.

With the sun once again shining across the city, the crews mustered in the early evening following a day of inter-crew sports, cultural activities and entertainment. The parade took them through the heart of Cadiz, starting in the main square and meandering through the small side streets before returning to the main stage for the end of series awards.
