Organisator of the Tall Ships Races

You are here

Do you know that:

  • The first Tall Ships Races in 1956 had twenty participating vessels? Today there are more than 100!
  • The host ports during the Tall Ships Races attracts more than ten- to hundred thousand visitors?
  • The City and the Port of Antwerp were the main sponsors from 1993, 2006, 2010 and 2016 ?
  • The name of Tall Ships originates from the poem Sea Fever van John Masefield? 
        It goes like this:
        I must go down to the sea again, to the lonely sea and the sky.
       All I ask is a tall ship and a star to steer her by.


Is this all ?

Of course not.
