Rendez-vous 2017 Tall Ships Regatta,

Quebec – Canada

    Organised by Sail Training International
    in association with Le Rendez-Vous Naval de Quebec



Plans for a Transatlantic Tall Ship Regatta in 2017 are progressing well and you are invited to be part of it.

The race marks the 150th anniversary of the Canadian Confederation through its founders and founding provinces. It’s an important event for a region where 80% of Canadians have agreed it's important to celebrate 2017.

STI is working in partnership with the City of Quebec, in association with Le Rendez-Vous Naval de Quebec, to take a Tall Ships fleet across the North Atlantic Ocean, with visits to selected host ports in six countries.

The partnership with Quebec and Rendez-Vous Naval also provides financial assistance for those ships which register early. To learn more please contact Francoise Pinget, Rendez-vous 2017 Tall Ships Regatta, Quebec – Canada Project Co-ordinator.
