So far 23 Tall Ships are registered to be sailing into Waterford next year for the prestigious Tall Ships Races. Most of the entrants had participated in the previous race that was last held in the south-eastern city in 2005. Other vessels are expected to visit for the first time, for the four-day maritime spectacle. 

Waterford City will host day and night-time festivities, culminating with the 'Parade of Sail' on 3 July. On that day the fleet will set-sail down the Suir Estuary and head around Ireland's western seaboard on the first race leg bound for Greenock, Scotland.

The following 'Class A' (the largest tall ships) are so far confirmed: Christian Radich (Norway), Eendracht (Netherlands), Europa (Netherlands), Kaliakra (Bulgaria), Lord Nelson (UK), Pogoria (Poland), Royalist (UK) and the Wylde Swan from The Netherlands.

In 'Class B' vessels include the Jolie Brise, Maybe, Moosk, Provident, Swan, Spirit of Fairbridge, all from the UK. The category also includes Gedania (Poland), John Laing (UK), Ocean Spirit of Moray (UK) and Spaniel (Latvia) and two vessels from Belgium, the Rupel and Tomidi.

In addition the Dutch Urania is the first 'Class D' entrant to register for the Waterford event.

The Tall Ships Races is presented by Szczecin and organised by Sail Training International. Further information on participating as a sail trainee in The Tall Ships Races 2011 contact 051 849640 or www.waterfordtallshipsrace.ie and www.facebook.com/enjoywaterford
