Don’t miss this unique opportunity to experience what promises to be the most splendid festival of the year. As a destination for the world-renowned Tall Ships event in 2006, Antwerp will be hosting the entire fleet for the closing of the transatlantic Tall Ships race. Not only will you be able to see the fleet in one location, you’ll also have plenty of time to soak up the magical atmosphere of fantastic festivities and all things nautical. With 2006 being the 50th Golden Jubilee year, this is an event not to be missed!
For four days, Antwerp will play host to the entire fleet of this transatlantic race, with vessels from more than 20 nations joining together to partake in one magical event. There’s just so much planned, you’ll be spoilt for choice!
Once in Antwerp itself, visitors from far and wide are promised a splendid festival not to be forgotten. The history of many centuries of sailing lives again in all its glory, with fantastic shows and concerts in the port and the Tall Ships as a magnificent backdrop. Just as with previous SAIL’s, the festival is open to every age group and will be an experience never to be forgotten!
