No places available anymore – Tall Ships Races 2015 – Race 1 Belfast marks the start of the summer’s most challenging and fun adventure. Along with 75 sailing ships from around the world, the Sorlandet will fight to be first over the finish line. You will experience almost unbearable excitement from start to finish. The Sørlandet is a traditional full-rigged ship. Three masts. 27 sails with 1,200 square metres to catch the wind. Gain as much speed as possible. It takes hard work. Many eager hands to heave the ship’s mile-long ropes. Prenight of afternight possible. Price 70 EUR p.p.p.n. Open to all ages, minimum age 15 years.

Visit the Titanic quarter waterfront, the Ulster Museum, or the Odyssey area where you'll find lots of entertainment. And spend some time in one of Belfast's many pubs.
Ålesund is once again host port for The Tall Ships Races in 2015. Ålesund harboured the event for the first time in 2001, in an intimate harbour amongst beautiful fjords, mountains and islands.

After a period of planning, the town was rebuilt in stone, brick, and mortar in Jugendstil.
