Up to five Tall Ships arrived into Dublin Bay overnight and are moored off Dun Laoghaire this morning in anticipation of this weekend's Dublin Tall Ships Regatta on the River Liffey at Dublin Port.

As Afloat.ie previously reported, the regatta sails into Dublin Port today and runs until to Monday, 4th June.

Organised by Sail Training International, the stopover in Dublin is hosted by Dublin City Council & Dublin Port Company. This year, the Regatta features seventeen ships racing from Liverpool to Dublin. They will then continue on to the historic Bay of Biscay, finishing up in Bordeaux, France. While this event is not on the scale of the Tall Ships Races of the past, it will give maritime enthusiasts a flavour of what these majestic ships are like, up close.

Over the June Bank Holiday weekend, the smaller ships can be viewed in Grand Canal Dock and the larger ships will be berthed on Sir John Rogerson’s Quay. The public is welcome to visit some of the ships on Saturday and Sunday.
