When the ships arrive in ports during Tall Ships Races, the sailors are welcomed by a crowd of people. The ports often host free concerts and entertainment for the whole family. Crew parades occur which all trainees can attend, as well as award ceremonies. After three days of celebration the festivities  usually end with a grand fireworks display before the ships prepare for new voyages. We recommend that you stay for some of the festivities. You can stay one night on board the ship before departure or after arrival in the Tall Ships Race-ports. Beyond this, we recommend that you enter the port’s own website or www.sailinginternational.org for further details on arrangements and accommodation.
