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.
