Bergen has been selected as one of the ports that will be visited by the Tall Ships Race in 2019. This will be the fifth time, earlier in 2008, 1993, 2001 and 2014.
The Tall Ships Races typically attract a fleet of 70-100 vessels from about 20 countries and of every size from 30ft yachts to square rigged ships over 300 feet long. Most years some 3.000-4.000 young people (aged 15-25) from close to 30 countries take part.
The first Tall Ships Race was arranged in 1956.
