Sea Cadets have once again been chosen to be one of five charity partners for the Tall Ships festival 2015, held between 2 - 5 July in Belfast.
Sea Cadets from across Northern Ireland are getting ready to welcome visitors of this year's festival. 42 Tall Ships from all over the world will anchor in Belfast, before sailing onto Alesun in Norway and Aalborg in Denmark.
In 2014 the charity was proud to be a Tall Ships partner in London and saw thousands of spectators pour through the gates of Greenwich to witness the spectacular display of 40 tall ships sailing down the river Thames.
This is the third time that Belfast has hosted the races, having previously welcomed the ships in 1991 and 2009.
The City hopes to attract 500,000 people, with another 500,000 watching the ships arrive and leave along the Northern Ireland and Irish coasts. The ships will be berthed in and around Belfast Harbour and the Titanic Quarter area. It's a fantastic experience and helps to put Sea Cadets in the centre of the community, we are thrilled to be taking part.
