The Tall Ships Races Magellan-Elcano 2023

Following the Tall Ships Race 2023 in the North of Europe, the Tall Ships Races Magellan-Elcano will bring two races and one Cruise in Company in the South of Europe. This new adventure will start on the 15th of August and finish on the 10th of September.

You can join one of different types of journeys – there’s something for everyone: one short race, one long race and one Cruise in Company. The destinations? Falmouth (15-18 August), A Coruna (24-27 August), Lisbon (31 August-5 September), and Cadiz (7-10 September).

These Races and all the free festivities in the ports are a great occasion to celebrate the 500th birthday of the first circumnavigation of the world by Ferdinand Magellan and Sebastián Elcano. These Tall ships expedition was one of the most important in the history of Tall Ships.


Originally planned for 2020, the Tall Ships will finally return to the Iberian Peninsula, visiting Falmouth, A Coruña, Lisbon and Cádiz. The Spanish and Portuguese cities have together hosted the Tall Ships an astounding number of 22 times, and Falmouth also has a long-standing tradition of welcoming the fleet. Many international Tall Ships will take part and safety measures will be updated depending on the situation.

The events will start in Falmouth, a picturesque Cornish town. From there the fleet will embark on an adventurous crossing of the Bay of Biscay to Spanish A Coruña. The next leg will be, a more relaxed, Cruise in Company along the Portuguese coast towards the beautiful Lisbon. For the final race the Ships will round Cape St. Vincent - the southernmost point of continental Europe - and sail to Cádiz for final celebrations.

First journeys are in - you can book your 2023 adventure now!
