We are very excited to announce our participation in a number of Tall Ships Challenge® Great Lakes events this coming season.
To start it off we will be participating in the Redpath Waterfront Festival (July 1-3) in Toronto. This festival takes place over the Canada Day weekend and we will be docked along with St. Lawrence II and the Canadian Navy at Harbour Square park. We have some really exciting plans in the works for this festival and will be announcing them soon. Check back on the blog for updates!
Next, Pathfinder and Playfair will join the fleet in Bay City, MI for the Tall Ships Celebration (July 14-17). A wonderful city that always gives us an incredibly warm welcoming.
Following Bay City, Playfair will continue with the fleet to Chicago for Tall Ships Chicago (July 27-31). The event is hosted at Navy Pier and is an impressive sight to see.
Our final event of the challenge will be at Tall Ships Erie (Sept. 8-11) in Erie, PA. It will be a fantastic way to finish up another great sailing season.
Make sure to come and say hi if you are at any of these events.
