Tall Ships Regatta 2018
The Tall Ships Regatta sails into Dublin Port from Friday, 1st June to Monday, 4th June. Organised by Sail Training International, the stopover in Dublin is hosted by Dublin City Council & Dublin Port Company. Drop into Grand Canal Dock and Sir John Rogersons Quay to see these wonderful ships, some of which will have free public access from 12pm to 6pm on Saturday 2nd and Sunday 3rd June.
This is the first time Dublin has hosted a Tall Ships event since 2012 and the event will focus on maritime activities, sail training opportunities, permanent visitor attractions and water based activities in the Dublin Docklands area. While this event is not on the scale of the Tall Ships Races of the past, it will give maritime enthusiasts a flavour of what these majestic ships are like, up close.
Welcoming the Tall Ships to Dublin, Ardmhéara Bhaile Átha Cliath/ Lord Mayor of Dublin Mícheál Mac Donncha said “As Admiral of Dublin Port, I would like to welcome the Tall Ships and their crews to Dublin city. I am delighted that over 50 trainees from the North East Inner City have been given the opportunity to take part in the race with the support of Sail Training Ireland. Events like the Tall Ships Regatta help to showcase the River Liffey as an amenity for leisure and recreation activities and strengthen the links between Dublin city and the port. Cuirim fáilte roimh na longa seoltóireachta go Baile Átha Cliath agus ta súil agam go mbainfidh daoine taithneamh as an chúirt.”
