Fredrikstad, Norway

Fredrikstad is proudly hosting The Tall Ships Races in 2019 for the third time – following successful events in 2005 and 2014.  

As Norway’s 6th largest city, it has a long and proud tradition of shipping and maritime activities, dating back to the 13th century.   

The fleet will have the exciting challenge of sailing through the magnificent archipelago in the Outer Oslo Fjord, which protects the city from the open sea and gives Fredrikstad the title of Norway’s gateway to Europe. And the city is highly experienced in arranging maritime events, saying it is in their blood to take good care of visitors who come by sea.
