Waterford Tall Ships 'Will Attract Half a Million'
The Tall Ships Races are expected to attract more than half a million visitors to the Suir estuary when they come to Waterford in six months' time.
The four-day event, which begins on 30 June, brought 500,000 spectators to Waterford when the city last hosted the tall ships in 2005.
So far nearly 40 vessels, representing 10 countries worldwide, have registered to compete in Waterford - including class A ships the Christian Radich from Norway and the British Pelican of London.

We've got a favour to ask

More people are reading Afloat.ie than ever thanks to the power of the internet but we're in stormy seas because advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news sites, we haven’t put up a paywall because we want to keep our marine journalism open.

Afloat.ie is Ireland's only full–time marine journalism team and it takes time, money and hard work to produce our content.

So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

If everyone chipped in, we can enhance our coverage and our future would be more secure. You can help us through a small donation. Thank you.
