Tall Ships Races 2023

The world famous tall ships races will return to Hartlepool on Thursday 6th 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.
