All hands on deck for The Tall Ships Races 2015!

05 December 2014

Belfast is looking forward to hosting yet another major international event, The Tall Ships Races 2015. Organised by Sail Training International, The Tall Ships Races will be welcomed by the annual Lidl Belfast Titanic Maritime Festival from 2 to 5 July.

This is the third time that Belfast has hosted the races, having previously welcomed the ships in 1991 and 2009. And just like the Giro d'Italia Big Start, Belfast has been chosen as the starting point of the race.

Up to 80 vessels will grace our shores and the event hopes to attract half a million people over the four day festival period. The ships will then continue to Ålesund and Kristiansand (in Norway) and finish off in the Danish port, Aalborg.

Volunteers are crucial to the success of any major event and Northern Ireland is renowned for its warm welcome! Volunteer Now is working with Tall Ships Belfast to recruit and train a selection of volunteers to make sure that everyone from event visitors to crew has an enjoyable experience.
