Tall Ships Coming to Boston

Calling all history buffs and nautical fans – the Tall Ships are on their way to Boston!

The Tall Ships will be docking in Boston Harbor now through next Thursday. This massive event is part of the Rendez-Vous 2017 Tall Ships Regatta, a transatlantic race over 7,000 miles of the Atlantic Ocean. With Boston’s extensive ties to all things maritime, it may come as no surprise that it’s the only American port part of the Regatta this year. The festivities began earlier today during the opening ceremony at noon, and family-friendly events will continue throughout next week, including sunset salutes, parades, and much more.

Sail Boston’s main event will be the Grand Parade of Sail tomorrow from 9:00 AM to 3:00 PM. The tall ships will sail into the Harbor’s main channel and along the waterfront before turning to Charlestown and settling in to their berthing areas. Furthermore, over a million people will come to enjoy Sail Boston’s festivities and watch the tall ships, with popular spots including Castle Island and the Charlestown Navy Yard for front-row views of the ships.

After the Grand Parade wraps up and the tall ships are docked at their designated piers, it’s your chance to board the ships free of charge! If you can’t board a ship on Saturday between 4 and 10 PM, they are also open to the public on Sunday from 10 AM to 10 PM.

This is also a perfect outing during Father’s Day Weekend, with fun for the whole family as part of Sail Boston. For a schedule of events and more information, visit Sail Boston’s website here.
