From Saturday 11 July to Tuesday 14 July 2026, The Tall Ships Races will come to Antwerp again! The city and Port of Antwerp-Bruges have a long history with the world-famous sailing race. That is why the city may host the ships as Anchor Port in both 2026 and 2030. Between the races, the city will receive several Tall Ships as ‘friendly host port’. Other host cities for the 2026 edition are Aarhus and Aalborg in Denmark, Harlingen in the Netherlands and Stavanger in Norway.
It is the eighth time that The Tall Ships Races will come to Antwerp. During the previous edition in 2022, 850,000 visitors came to admire the ships. Here’s to another top edition!
