We couldn’t wait to return to the “Emerald Isle” for Dublin’s third Tall Ships event, to help promote its maritime activity, sail training opportunities and attractions and water based activities in the Dublin Docklands area.
Dublin extended its customary friendly welcome to trainees, crew members and visitors alike, as the second port of Three Festivals Tall Ships Regatta 2018. We were looking forward to revisiting the River Liffey and the Docklands area, and bringing sail training opportunities to local young people. There was fantastic street entertainment alongside the ships and visitors were able to go on board the majestic vessels as well as enjoying water based activities and the other permanent attractions.
Dublin is the Republic of Ireland’s capital, and it’s largest city. It’s located in the province of Leinster on the east coast, on the mouth of the River Liffey. The city was founded as a Viking settlement, and today it boasts medieval castles, cathedrals, art, and architecture in abundance.
Dublin has a huge personality that embraces diversity – it’s a melting pot of cultures and nationalities, which contribute to this cobbled city’s friendly feel.
“Dublin is a fantastic international destination city, and I’m sure that the captains and crews will have a memorable time here.”
Paul Bishop, Race Director, Sail Training International.
