Sail Boston 2017 was held from 17-22nd June at Boston harbour in Boston. It was global event being held as part of Rendez-Vous 2017 Tall Ships Regatta in the honour of 150th anniversary of founding of Canadian Confederation. The six day festivities started on 17th June with Grand Parade of tall ships sailing from Broad Sound to the main channel of Boston harbour to Charles town.
55 ships sail from around the world racing through six international ports throughout summer in UK, Portugal, Bermuda, America, Canada and France. In America the Tall ships docked at Boston, where public can see, board and interact with crew.
Everyday some entertainment activity was organised by the local military organisation or navy cadets. On 22nd June, majority of ships will continue sailing towards Quebec in Canada as part of Rendez-Vous 2017.
The parade of international ships was held in 2000 and sail event in 2007. It was being held after ten years. I was lucky to be in Boston during those days. My daughter took me to show it on the evening of 21st June. It was a spectacular event. I enjoyed watching the ships and had taken few pictures too.
