Tall Ships: Viewing for Leisure Craft
During 13-16 August 2009, Belfast Harbour will host the Tall Ships. A significant number of event vessels are expected and these will be berthed at Queen’s Quay, Abercorn Basin, Donegall Quay and Albert Quay.
Belfast Harbour will welcome recreational vessels wishing to visit the Port during the event and will implement the following procedures to ensure that this is achieved in a safe and fair manner.
The downloadable form below must be submitted before the Harbour can consider granting access to leisure craft between the hours of 0900 and 2000 from Thursday 13 to Saturday 15 August. On successful completion and acceptance of this submission the leisure craft will be able to enter the Harbour and may circulate within the area bounded by the M3 Bridge and Ballast Quay.
Please note: No leisure craft will be permitted in this area during Sunday 16 August, as the event vessels will be preparing for the Parade of Sail.
Unfortunately, due to the number of event vessels, it will not be possible to allow visiting leisure vessels to berth in the Harbour area.
We anticipate demand may be high and the numbers of leisure craft may have to be limited at certain times.
To facilitate management of the demand, Belfast Harbour requests that you complete and submit the form below.
The following conditions must be met for your application to be considered;
VHF Channel 12/16.
Evidence of appropriate level of insurance.
At least 2 people on board.
Life saving equipment for all on board (Life Jackets must be worn at all times).
