Belfast Harbour to launch 2015 Tall Ships Races

Motorboat & Yachting: Up to 80 tall ships will moor in Belfast Harbour this July before the annual Tall Ships Races to Denmark.

 

Tall ships lovers are in for a treat in Belfast this summer, as up to 80 of these historic vessels will be moored in the city harbour from July 2-5.

Visiting as part of the annual Tall Ships Races, the fleet will include 15-20 A-class vessels (more than 40m long) and a number of South American military vessels.

Classic yacht fans will have four days to see the ships close up as part of the Belfast Titanic Maritime Festival, which is free to attend and will include ‘park and ride’ shuttle bus services.

Moored across ten docks and quays in the Titanic Quarter, the tall ships promise to be a spectacular sight, with the backdrop of the historic Belfast cranes Samson and Goliath.

Around 500,000 people are expected to visit the tall ships festival before the vessels depart for Scandinavia on July 5.

This year’s Tall Ships Races series will see the fleet call at Alesund and Kristiansand in Norway, before reaching the finishing line at the Danish city of Aalborg on August 4.
