Our Top 9 Moments from the Tall Ships Races 2019: Starring famous spectacles such as ferris wheels, Crew Parades, amazing arrivals and more…

We had some amazing and magical moments throughout the 33 days of sailing and celebrations that will last a lifetime. We enjoyed grand arrivals, Tall Ships and Small Ships, beautiful city sights and fantastic Crew Parties across Denmark and Norway. With over 6,000 participants and over 1.9 million visitors in port, we can’t wait to return to the North Sea in 2022.

We collected our top 9 favourite moments and you can check them out in the gallery below!

    1) Aarhus' Ferris Wheel: The Tall Ships Races are an amazing spectacle in every port they visit, but sometimes they like to enjoy a little company. Aarhus duly obliged this year and installed a mighty 50m high ferris wheel especially for the visit. What a way to see the fleet!

Make Your Own Magical Moments in 2020

Have our favourite memories got you thinking about a Tall Ships experience of your own? The Tall Ships Races 2020 will take the international fleet of Tall Ships and Small Ships south to the Iberian Peninsula and you could be a part of the amazing adventure. There’s no experience necessary and you can take part in any leg as a full member of crew!

The event will take the magnificent fleet of ships to Lisbon, Portugal, Cadiz, Spain, A Coruña, Spain, and Dunkirk, France. The fleet will sail over 1900 nautical miles across 3 legs and transform each Host Port city they stop in. It will be a truly life changing experience for those taking part, giving you the perfect opportunity to make you own magical moments.
