Tall Ships Are Coming in 2017

The Premier announced today, that tall ships would be part of the province’s Canada 150 celebration. Nova Scotia has been confirmed as a Rendez-vous 2017 Tall Ships Regatta venue and the start of the final leg of the race.

An outport program is being developed that will see some of the ships visiting several coastal communities in the province. Government will provide $1.5 million over two years to help those communities welcome visitors and tall ships to their ports.

Rendez-vous 2017 Tall Ships Regatta is a 7,000-nautical mile transatlantic race, visiting six countries. Nova Scotia’s sailing ambassador Bluenose II will also take part in the tall ships visit.

Dates for events and specific location of visits by the ships to other Nova Scotia ports will be confirmed over coming months

About Halifax Shipping News

Halifax Shipping News began in 2008 as a blog called The Armchair Captain. The idea behind it came when I would become curious about the comings and goings in the harbour, and research to find their source. I figured if I was wondering, others would be as well, and so I would blog about them. 5+ years later, here we are. This blog is written by Peter Ziobrowski. Peter is a Senior IT System Architect, and holds a BA in the History & Theory of Architecture,as well as diplomas in Computer System Technology and Information System Security. His personal site can be found at http://www.ziobrowski.net. Peter is available for media interviews on local Maritime issues. He also holds a large collection of photos of shipping subjects from Halifax suitable for publication. You can contact him directly via email at peter@halifaxshippingnews.ca.
