The Tall Ships Races called at Antwerp for the seventh time. Some 40 ships were moored for four days in the docks around the MAS, at Kattendijkdok and at the Scheldt Quays near Het Steen. At the same time, the Bollekesfeest Festival took place on the Grote Markt and Groenplaats. Some 850,000 visitors came to soak up the atmosphere in Antwerp, admire the cathedrals of the sea and enjoy performances, good food and drink during this long weekend of festivities.
And good news, The Tall Ships Races will return to Antwerp in 2026 and 2030.
See you then!
