Tall Ships Race 2015: Belfast to Alesund Posted on

The Tall Ships Races are now just over five months away so, if you want  to be in the thick of the action, book now to avoid disappointment.

The first leg, between Belfast and Alesund, takes place between Friday, July 3, and Thursday, July 16. There are now just five berths left with Trinity on this section of the Tall Ships. Last year Leader, built in 1892, was the oldest vessel taking part across the entire fleet.

Belfast City Council has released a teaser video telling people what to expect from the first host port. Kevin Grant, from the Belfast Tall Ships Festival Team, said they are expecting 500,000 people to attend the maritime spectacle this summer.

There are around 80 vessels set to take part with more than 1,000 crew members from across the world. To find you can get involved head to our Tall Ships Races page.
