From 12th to 15th July 2021, Dunkirk is happy to welcome some of the tallest and most beautiful ships for the Tall Ship Races. It is the first time Dunkirk is a host to this event.

This annual event is held in European waters and one of the key rules is that 50% of each ship's crew must be aged between 15 and 25 years.

Dozens of tall and traditional ships, and 2000 sailors from all around the world will meet in Dunkirk!

The port and the city of Dunkirk will make it a big maritime celebration: visits of the ships, sailing experiences, exhibitions, maritime themed stalls, concerts and other numerous activities on the docks.
