Quebec City, Canada
As one of the oldest European settlements in North America, Quebec City is the perfect location for a celebration that will be remembered for a long, long time. Don’t miss this chance to experience the undeniable charm, unique culture and urban savoir-faire that can only come from this French capital recognised as a world heritage site by UNESCO.
The jewel in the crown of the Rendez-vous 2017 Tall Ships Regatta is the arrival of the international fleet into Quebec up the St Lawrence River. As well as the tremendous Tall Ships thousands of visitors from across Canada and internationally will enjoy free land activities, colourful crew parades and street artist performances. There will also be dinghy training and the opportunity to mix with 3,000 crew members from around the world.
There hasn’t been a world class Transatlantic Tall Ships Regatta fleet in Quebec since 1984 and the economic impact of this event to Canada, as a country, will certainly be important.
