During the Tall Ships Races voyage from Esbjerg to Stavanger there will be several opportunities for tall ships to take part in cruise-in-company events hosted by smaller harbours.
These events bring The Tall Ships Races to a wider region and offer participating ships revenue from hospitality events and regional trainees. There will be no harbour fees, and participating ports offer a range of activities for visiting crew.
