Rendez-Vous 2017 Tall Ships Regatta

Over the Easter weekend in April 2017, Greenwich will host the Redez-Vous 2017 Tall Ships Regatta.

The regatta, organised by Sail Training International, will sail from Greenwich to Quebec in Canada, to mark the 150th anniversary of the Canadian Confederation.

The fleet of over 30 large Class A and B Tall Ships will gather for four days on the River Thames at Greenwich and Woolwich before setting sail for Canada via Sines in Portugal, Bermuda and Boston.

There will be a huge Parade of Sail starting at 5pm from Deptford Creek on Sunday 16 April.

During the Parade of Sail, the whole Tall Ships fleet will sail together down the Thames to the sea, before crossing the Atlantic and arriving in Quebec on 18 July 2017.

It has been suggested that a group of boats may go out from LHYC on Sunday evening to see the fleet off in the Estuary. If interested contact Alan Douglas or Mick Drury.
