My Experience At The Rendez-Vous 2017 Tall Ships Regatta

Rendez-Vous 2017 Tall Ships Regatta is led by Sail Training International. Rendez-Vous 2017 Tall Ships Regatta is a transatlantic race of 7,000 nautical miles taking place over the course of five months in 2017. The race started at the port of Royal Greenwich in Great Britain on April 13 and finishes in the port of Le Havre, France, which will welcome the grand winner between August 31 and September 3. There will be stops in Portugal, Bermuda, the United States and Canada along the way.

More than 40 Tall Ships sailed Canadian waters to honour the 150th anniversary of the Canadian Confederation in 2017. They were scheduled to stop at host ports in Ontario, Québec and the Atlantic, giving thousands of people the opportunity to admire the majestic beauty of these cathedrals of the sea.

Between late June and mid-August, 2017 tall ships will visit 11 ports around Nova Scotia, including Lunenburg, Pictou, Sydney, St. Peter’s, Louisbourg, Pugwash, Port Hawkesbury, Halifax, Shelburne, Digby and ended with an evening sail past in Annapolis Basin, a first for Nova Scotia.

My family and I attended the event on one of the days and it was such a beautiful and wholesome experience. We went on some of the ships, had a tour of them, asked the sailors and crew questions, took pictures.

It was such a mind blowing experience. From great local culinary experiences, entertainment, history, Aboriginal programming, rides for the kids, fireworks, e.t.c ! One of the climax for us was when we went on one of the water taxis for a cruise.
