The Tall Ships fleet returns to Esbjerg

For the fifth time, the impressive fleet of traditional ships will visit the Port of Esbjerg. The event takes place in July 2022, when Esbjerg becomes the starting port for the race.

The ships will arrive in Esbjerg no later than July 7. After a festive couple of days, the race will officially begin when the fleet sails on July 10. On July 14, the ships arrive in Harlingen, the Netherlands, and leave the harbor again on July 17. On July 22, Antwerp in Belgium is ready to receive The Tall Ships Races. The final stretch of the race will be launched on July 25, when the vessels set sail again for Denmark, where Aalborg will be the destination port of the year.

Esbjerg previously hosted The Tall Ships Races in 1993, 2001, 2014 and 2018.

The Tall Ships Races is organized by Sail Training International, an English non-profit organization that aims at educating young people and promoting cultural understanding through experiences at sea.
