The Tall Ships Races 2023

The Tall Ships Races 2023 will take place from 29th of June till 6th of August 2023. The international Tall Ships, small ships and yachts will explore the North Sea, sailing from Den Helder in the Netherlands to Hartlepool in North East England, then back across the sea to Norwegian Fredrikstad. From there the more relaxed Cruise in Company leg will bring the fleet to Lerwick in the Shetland Islands, which is also the start of the final race to Arendal, Norway.
