The Summer We Return to the Great Lakes

Posted by Tall Ships America on September 11, 2018

We could not be more excited to announce our TALL SHIPS CHALLENGE®2019 Race Series in the Great Lakes. Eleven ports will host a fleet of tall ships throughout June, July and August. But wait, Sarnia and Midland are on the same dates!? How observant of you.  While some ships will be in Sarnia and the Detroit River, the rest will head up to beautiful Georgian Bay and Midland for the weekend.

We have an amazing line up of returning ports – Brockville, Toronto, Erie, Cleveland, Green Bay and four time Port of the Year winner, Bay City. We also have some fresh faces in the mix this year – Buffalo, Kingsville, Sarnia, Midland, and Kenosha.

We’ll also have your favorite Great Lakes (and beyond!) tall ships as part of the fleet and we are sprinkling in some new ships for your viewing pleasure. It’s going to be a busy summer and I can’t wait to get started.

Stay tuned for more updates, including websites as they go live and participating ships. Mark your calendars for the summer of 2019!

    Tall Ships America:
    As a response and interest to this I have posted the Cleveland port and Cleveland arrival as an event page.
    For whatever reason this event posting has gone “viral” and I have approaching 9,000 people interested and attending connected to that event post in 2 days!!
    For our part we plan on sailing in the Cleveland vacinity and harbor with our trimaran sailboat.
    I have many peoiple asking questions about what ships are attending and what vendors may be there ect.
    Please feel free to share any information on this facebook event page as it seems to be getting allot of attention.
