Stavanger, Norway


Stavanger is going to be a Tall Ships Races host port for the fourth time in 2018 claiming to be ‘better rigged than ever’ to host The Tall Ships Races fleet and crews.  The three previous events were in 1997, 2004 and 2011.

Located on the south-western coast of Norway, Stavanger is known as the ‘energetic city’, because its natural coastal location and open and progressive attitude has made it the energy capital of both Norway and Europe.  But it also combines small town charm with metropolitan liveliness.

"We are delighted to welcome The Tall Ships Races in 2018. This is a unique opportunity for Stavanger to show that we have improved our qualities as a host port," said Mayor Christine Sagen Helgø.
