Chicago is the final stop of the Great Lakes United Tall Ships Challenge. The Tall Ships Challenge theme is “the Race to Save the Lakes” and promoting a message of conservation and protection of the worlds largest source of fresh surface water.
Here are pictures of the brigantine’s when they were in Chicago in 2006.
The Playfair and Pathfinder are two of twelve tall ships participating in the Pepsi Tall Ships Chicago 2010 on Navy Pier (Aug 24 to 29). We will be the smaller vessels in the show, but we look just as pretty as the rest of them!
Trainees participating in Toronto Brigantine’s Course #6 Summer Sail Program from Tobermory and ending their sail in Chicago joining the Tall Ship Challenge as they sail into Navy Pier.
