Join us at The Tall Ships Races 2026

Welcome in Antwerp

In 2022, The Tall Ships Races attracted 850,000 visitors to Antwerp. In 2026, we are happy to make it a sparkling event again! Antwerp will be host port from Saturday 11 July to Tuesday 14 July 2026. All Tall Ships, big and small, are welcome. Look forward to an attractive programme for both crew and public!

Why participate?

Antwerp is a bustling metropolis in the heart of Europe and one of the top three largest European ports. The city, city harbor and port are in full development. They are constantly renewing and growing. Antwerp has much to offer as a city with attractions, cosy catering establishments, museums or shopping streets. Worth discovering!

During The Tall Ships Races 2026, you will not only stop in Antwerp, but also in Aarhus, Harlingen, Stavanger and Aalborg. It will be a beautiful journey with attractive, international port cities. And you can rest assured, because together the host ports have already organised more than 20 Races, with more than 2 million visitors each time.
