setting sail in JULy 2023

Hartlepool has the huge honour of hosting the world-famous Tall Ships’ Race again in the summer of 2023.

It comes after hundreds of thousands of visitors from far and wide flocked to the Borough when the vessels last visited in 2010 – the largest free event held in England that year.

Hartlepool Waterfront and its associated facilities are second to none and we proved during 2010 that we have the capability to host an event of this magnitude.

remember the fun we had last time?

Hundreds of thousands of visitors from far and wide flocked to the Borough when the vessels last visited in 2010 – the largest free event held in England that year.

Hartlepool is a Borough with a proud maritime heritage and to host The Tall Ships again in 2023 will be a huge honour. When we hosted the event in 2010, hundreds of thousands of visitors from far and wide created a real party mood throughout Hartlepool and I believe we are a fitting venue for the Tall Ships in 2023.
