It is over 50 years since the first Tall Ships Races and 12 years since the fleet visited a Scottish port. This year The Tall Ships Races 2011 will visit five ports in 2011.


Saturday 9th - Monday 11th July - 11.00 - 22.30 hrs

Tuesday 12th July - 11.00 - 1300 hrs (ships will leave harbour from 09.00 hrs)


Inchgreen and James Watt Dock Greenock.


Large crowds visit the host ports for The Tall Ships Races. Around 800,000 visits were made to Greenock during the Cutty Sark Tall Ships event in 1999.

Both areas are working docks and visitors are advised to wear sensible footware.
