Tall Ships

Over 50 Tall Ships are in Boston as part of the festivities related to the Rendez‑Vous 2017 Tall Ships Regatta, a transatlantic race to six countries taking place over the course of five months.

The race started at Royal Greenwich in Great Britain on April 13 and will finish in Le Havre, France between August 31 and September 3. There race includes stops in Portugal, Bermuda, Boston and Canada (List and Map of Stops).

Sail Boston is hosting a huge Parade of Sail on Saturday, June 17, 2017 with 50+ Tall Ships sailing into Boston Harbor. Here’s a lovely promotional video they made about the Tall Ship’s visit to Boston.

Boston.com posted a photo gallery of what the spectacle looked like.

Here’s a neat 360° Video filmed earlier this month when the ships were in Hamilton that will give you a sense of what they look like in port.


If you happen to be in Boston or at any of the ports along the route, then there are some spectacular views of some great old ships to be had. Check them out!
