Let’s do this

Posted by Tall Ships America on June 27, 2016






I leave on Wednesday for our kickoff event for the TALL SHIPS CHALLENGE(r) Great Lakes 2016 Race Series. Wee! Redpath Waterfront Festival Toronto, presented by Ports Toronto, will be the first port to host the tall ships this summer and they always do a fabulous job of welcoming the ships and the crews to their lovely city.  For all of the ports and information about their events, visit our website. While you are there, check out the fleet tracker so you can follow your favorite ship as they sail through the Great Lakes.

While the interns will be blogging about their adventures as part of the Race Team, we’ll also be tweeting (@tallshipsfleet) and posting photos on Instagram (@tallshipsamerica). Follow us for updates about life on the road with the tall ships and general hilarity.

We also have five races, on in each of the Great Lakes, sponsored by Erie Insurance. While Ben and George get to be on the ships, they’ll be posting about their experiences here, I’ll be on the start line taking photos and making sure no one crosses the line early 🙂

We have eight amazing Host Ports this summer and I can’t wait to visit every one of them. Along with an incredible fleet of tall ships, it promises to be a banner summer. I hope to see you there!

Official Host Ports and their event websites are here.
