Hartlepool, UK

Hartlepool first hosted the Tall Ships fleet during The Tall Ships Races 2010 and will welcome the race series for the second time in 2023. The northeastern port town laid on a stunning four days of celebrations during our first visit and we can’t wait to return.

When Hartlepool welcomed the Tall Ships fleet back in 2010, the Host Port celebrations were the largest free event to be held in England that year. By the time the fleet return in 2023, the waterfront will be transformed by a recently announced redevelopment to the National Museum of the Royal Navy and surrounding Hartlepool Waterfront site.

With a rich record of hosting high profile events, including BBC’s Big Weekend and the Great North Games, there’s no doubt The Tall Ships Races 2023 will receive a vibrant and inspiring welcome.
