Aarhus has a long, strong maritime history since the Vikings and previously hosted The Tall Ships Races in 2007 and 2013. Working with the local community they are committed to giving youngsters the life changing experience of sailing in the Tall Ships Races and include a special programme for people with disabilities.
“I am very much looking forward to the Tall Ships Races revisiting Aarhus in 2019. A visit by this magnificent sailing race event fits perfectly with the maritime focus of our city, and it will be a natural, and most welcome, addition to our calendar of major events after our year as European Capital of Culture in 2017 and the ISAF Worlds in 2018. The unique Bay of Aarhus and our new urban harbour areas will provide a wonderful setting for the large contingent of mighty Tall Ships and attract large numbers local residents and visitors,” said Rabih Azad-Ahmad, Mayor of Sport, Culture and Citizens Services, for the City of Aarhus.
