The first ever Tall Ships Race took place in 1956. 20 tall ships sailed from Great Britain to Portugal to promote Sail Training and international friendship. Originally meant as a single event, the race gained huge public interest and soon turned into an annual event, organized by Sail Training International. Each year dozens of Tall Ships, as well as small ships and yachts gather for races, but also harbor events: Crew Parades, Crew Parties, competitions, concerts, fireworks and much more!

In 2020 the Tall Ships go back to the Atlantic coast of Europe. Race 1 will start in Lisbon and end in Cadiz. From there the ships will sail to A Coruna in a mixed leg including several days of racing and then some more relaxed sailing. The final leg will take them across the Bay of Biscay and into the English Channel to Dunkirk. Will you join the adventure?
