The Tall Ships Races Bergen 2019
For the fifth time, Bergen has been chosen as the official host port for The Tall Ships Races. From the 21st to 24th of July 2019, the city will be filled with the largest and most beautiful sailing ships in the world.
Bergen has a long tradition of hosting international and public events. This experience has given the city a good reputation as a host city. The warm and friendly atmosphere, hospitality and enthusiasm, combined with beautiful surroundings, make it special for sailing ships to come to Bergen.
The Ship Crew
Every year, hundreds of young people sail between the host ports, establish friendships and acquire new skills. At least 50 % of the crew on board the ships must be aged between 15 and 25 years. The main focus of the event is to promote diversity and provide sail training in a friendly environment. For some, this is a life-changing experience!
Sail Training International // The Tall Ships Races is organized by Sail Training International (STI). The goal of the organization is to motivate, develop, and educate youth aged 15-25 through sail training aboard the ships – regardless of nationality, religion and social background.
