Following a exciting finish in the race from Dublin, Ireland, to Bordeaux, France, the provisional results of the second race of the Three Festivals Tall Ships Regatta 2018 are in…
Following six days of great racing, there was a close fight for first place in Race 2, with Arawak (France) beating Belle Poule (France) to the finish line after some tactical decisions allowed them to take advantage of better wind conditions in the final 12 hours of their race.
Here’s what Race Director, Ben Stuart, had to say about how the race developed.
“With Belem gracefully crossing the finish line just after a sunset supper on board, all vessels have finished and are settling in to a few days in Bordeaux. The final results will be confirmed tomorrow as the city welcomes the fleet to the weekend’s festivities when the crew will parade through the town to the prize giving ceremony.”

ABOUT THE THREE FESTIVALS TALL SHIPS REGATTA 2018
The Three Festivals Tall Ships Regatta is a two-leg event across three sea areas and will take place in north-west Europe. Liverpool, United Kingdom (U.K.) will be the start port, then vessels will race to Dublin, Republic of Ireland (R.O.I), and on to Bordeaux, France. The Regatta will see an international fleet of Tall Ships undertake a voyage across the Irish Sea, Celtic Sea and Bay of Biscay.
Any Tall Ships Regatta is a spectacular event for visitors and crew alike, and the Three Festivals Tall Ships Regatta 2018 is no exception. Each stop on the regatta route will coincide with major celebrations as Liverpool marks the ten year anniversary of their year as the European capital of culture and Bordeaux hold the leading European wine festival, Bordeaux Fête le Vin.
