The City Antwerp will be the starting point for the Tall Ships Races. The tall ships depart from Antwerp, sailing south and calling at Lisbon (Portugal), Cadiz and La Coruño (Spain) respectively.The emphasis is mainly on the sporting and educational aspects of the competition, which aims to teach young people all kinds of skills. Dozens of ships will be moored along the Scheldt quays and in the docks in Antwerp's Eilandje district: Some of the largest and most vessels participate in the race. Everyone is once again welcome to visit the ships and take part in the festivities: Discover the complete programme.
