A record amount of guests stopped by the Port of Esbjerg this weekend to experience the Tall Ships Races 2014. The goal was to break the record in 2001, when half a million visitors saw the Tall Ships Races in Esbjerg. The day before the finish was completed, the record was broken, and a total of 545,000 visitors came to the port of Esbjerg during Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

"It's great that The Tall Ships Races 2014 is so successful, and we have broken the record from 2001. It is a pleasure to meet so many happy guests at the harbor. Many have been here for one day, while others have been past the harbor many times during The Tall Ships Races, and we're happy for the great support, "says project manager for The Tall Ships Races 2014, Villy Green.

The number of guests is an estimate, which was reached by using different enumerations. Saturday was the biggest day with 190,000 guests, and there were 75,000 people gathered at once at the port. On Sundaythe number of visitors was 160,000, while the number of visitors Monday was 130,000. The numbers for Tuesday are missing
