TALL SHIPS CHALLENGE Atlantic Coast 2017, a Tall Ships Series in North America
19th May 2017
22nd Jun 2017
The TALL SHIPS CHALLENGE® is an annual series organised by Tall Ships America® to promote the sail training experience, foster international cultural exchange and keep alive the rich maritime heritage represented by the tall ships community. In between visits to a number of maritime festivals the tall ships take part in races, crewed by young people who may never have sailed before, running educational programmes that help help them to develop both personally and professionally.
The TALL SHIPS CHALLENGE® Atlantic Coast 2017 series will see the tall ships race north through multiple east coast festivals before arriving at Sail Boston 2017 to meet the fleet of Rendezvous 2017, a transatlantic tall ships regatta celebrating the 150th anniversary of the Canadian Confederation. As a part of that regatta, the vessels will then continue on to a highlight event in Quebec City.
