Since the first Tall Ships Race in 1956, Tall Ships have continued to capture the interest and imagination of crowds around the word. The world famous Tall Ships Races, organised by Sail Training International, normally take place in Europe during the summer months and Tall Ships Regattas are also often organised at different times of the year in European waters and beyond.
Over the years, ports and cities have increasingly sought to attract the Tall Ships fleet and with more and more Tall Ships events taking place, the calendar for maritime festivals around the world is getting busier and busier.
The Sail Training International Endorsed Event Scheme is open to any port or city who would like their Tall Ships event to be associated with and supported by Sail Training International.

Requirements for endorsement
