Sail Away with Rendez-vous Naval 2017

Ready to set sail in 2017?  A fleet of historic tall ships from around the world are making their way to a port near you as part of the Rendez-vous Naval 2017 Tall Ships Regatta, a pan-Canadian Signature project of Canada 150.

The transatlantic race covers 7,000 nautical miles, stopping in six different countries including Canada. Dropping anchor in over 30 Canadian ports, the full fleet will unite for a grand celebration in Quebec City. That's not all--with the help of Sail Training International the race is an opportunity for youth to learn the ropes at sea.  

Trainees aged 15 to 25 years old are invited from across Canada to take part for either one leg of the race, or while the ships are in Canadian waters.
