The new regatta, featuring ships from that event, is expected to attract about 450,000 visitors to the city.

The international crews will parade in the city and a number of ships will be open to the public.

Peter Cardy, chief executive of Sail Training International, said: “Liverpool has a rich maritime history and has been a great friend to sail training which has helped to develop a strong willingness throughout the Tall Ships family to return to the city.

“We hope that the Irish Sea Tall Ships Regatta could become a recurring fixture in the busy calendar of events that is enjoyed by the residents of Liverpool as well as the many visitors to this fantastic city.”
