Tall Ships Liverpool 2018

An international fleet of tall ships takes over the city of Liverpool in England for Tall Ships Liverpool 2018, the start of the Three Festivals Tall Ships Regatta 2018.

If you've heard of Liverpool, you're sure to know a few of the things the city is famous for, one of them being its docks. Those docks are not consigned to history however, they're very much in use, and every year they become the beating heart of a celebration of the region - The International Mersey River Festival.

This festival regularly attracts tall ships big and small from all over Europe and in 2018 will become host to the beginning of a quite spectacular event - The Three Cities Tall Ships Regatta. You may see it called the Mersey River Festival 2018, or you may see it called Tall Ships Liverpool 2018 - all we know is they're one and the same and you really can't afford to miss it!

From Liverpool the tall ships will race across to Dublin, Ireland before heading south for the finale of the Three Festivals Regatta in Bordeaux, France.

The Three Festivals Tall Ships Regatta 2018, a fantastic series of events taking place in the UK, Ireland and France!

Every year the European cities of Liverpool, Dublin and Bordeaux each host their own, unmissable events. Among these, key highlights are the International Mersey River Festival, Dublin RiverFest and Bordeaux Wine Festival, three events which will - in 2018 - come together as host ports for one of the largest tall ship regattas of the year, The Three Festivals Tall Ships Regatta 2018.

Sail Training International’s Tall Ships Regattas attract tall ships of all classes to many beautiful locations across Europe each year. The selected ports host festivals that can be expected to bring hundreds of thousands of visitors over 3 to 4 days. Sports, social, and cultural activities will be planned for the thousands of crew members whilst the highlight of any festival is sure to be the crew parade as participants from all corners of the world come together to take over the streets.
