The event is a fantastic gathering not just for sailing enthusiasts, but for anyone interested in history too, as the event will coincide with the 200th anniversary celebrations of Norway’s constitution.
Fredrikstad, the first port of call for the 2014 edition, from July 12-15, has a long maritime tradition - it was once Norway’s largest schooner town, home to 180 vessels. This summer it will once again welcome dozens of tall ships from around the world.
Come and see these majestic ships as they moor once again right in Fredrikstad’s centre, just like they used to a hundred years ago, and take part in the huge street party Fredrikstad will throw for the occasion.
The city of Bergen has the honor of hosting The Tall Ships Races for the fourth time, July 24-27 2014. Bergen was a Host Port in 1993, 2001 and 2008.
This year the key side will once again be full of people and activities for all ages, with free entertainment from three stages and also entertainment from, and on board, the tall ships. Maritime cultural traditions combined with modern music and culture will be an emphasis in our cultural program. The strong and successful traditions of The Tall Ships Races will be supplemented by new attractions so as to strengthen the interest of the young people of today and the future.
