Jump on board this summer and get involved in one of Dublin’s most anticipated event of year, The Tall Ships Races 2012 from August 23rd - 26th. This year Dublin is set to be the final host port for The Tall Ships Races and it’s all hands on deck, as volunteers are needed for one of the world’s biggest maritime events of 2012. After 14 years, the magnificent Tall Ships will return with a bang to form the breath-taking backdrop to a 4-day long celebration in Dublin where the city will be bustling with entertainment. The quaysides north and south of the river Liffey will be alive with mesmerising street performers, buskers and bands all weekend. An exciting family programme in Grand Canal Square will present nautical themed workshops and installations, interactive concerts, puppet shows, storytelling and amazing water sports displays in Grand Canal Dock, an exciting spectacle not to be missed!
The Tall Ships Races 2012 - Dublin, presented by Szczecin and organised by Sail Training International arrives in Dublin on Thursday 23rd August and will see the city burst with festival atmosphere both on and off the water. Local organisers, Dublin City Council and Dublin Port Company are delighted that Dublin was chosen as the final host port of The Tall Ships Races 2012 and are working around the clock to finalise all details for the ships arrival and programming for the four days of free quayside spectacle and performance and they need your help!

Up to 1,000 volunteers are required for The Tall Ships Races 2012 - Dublin to give visitors the warmest of welcomes, help create a great atmosphere and an experience they will never forget.
