We can’t have a TALL SHIPS CHALLENGE® Race Series without tall ships and a port to host them! Host ports have benefited greatly from the arrival of these majestic ships. Tens of thousands of people of all ages flock to the waterfront for these grand events. Tall Ships America oversees the entire series and works closely with each of the host ports to help ensure that their event is safe, successful, and fun for everyone. Each Host Port Organizer is responsible for the production of their local event. This includes permitting and interaction with authorities for crowd safety and security, publicity and marketing, securing sponsorship, providing safe berthing and other certain necessary services to the vessels and their crews, funding and fiscal management, recruiting volunteers, arranging for on-site programming and vendors (as desired), etc.
