18th July 2022

The Royal Belgian Shipowners’ Association, the Antwerp Maritime Academy and CMB.TECH cordially invites you to their activity tent during the Tall Ships Races in Antwerp from 22-24 July.

What are the Tall Ships Races?

More than 40 largest sailing ships in the world will gather in the Port of Antwerp for the seventh time, before racing one another to Aalborg in Denmark on 25 July.


Get to know Belgian Shipping and win incredible prizes

Discover the maritime sector at the #SeaYou tent! As a maritime nation, Belgian Shipping is world-renowned for its innovations and professionalism. As part of the Tall Ships Races programme, there will be activities and contests organised at the tent to attract new talents into the seafaring profession at the time of energy transition and digitalisation.

The #SeaYou tent will be located at the world’s first multimodal hydrogen refuelling station built by CMB.TECH, where the public will be able to get a view of the decarbonised future of shipping and transport in general.

Apart from viewing various videos about the industry, guests will be able to test their strength at a high striker. Each day, 400 lucky participants will not only be treated to a delicious ‘boule de Berlin‘ (a traditional Belgian beach snack), but also experience a ride on the waters on a sloop operated by the Antwerp Maritime Academy.

Interested participants can also take part in a written quiz to assess their knowledge of the shipping industry, and try their luck in a lucky draw each day.

(Friday 22 July) a Meal Voucher at the Royal Yacht Club of Antwerp. The prize will be presented by Mr Wilfried Lemmens, RBSA’s Managing Director;
