The first stop of the Great Lakes United Tall Ships Festival will be in Toronto. 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.
The Playfair and Pathfinder are two of fourteen tall ships participating in the Redpath Toronto Waterfront Festival (Jun 30 to Jul 4). We will be the smallest vessels in the show, but we look just as pretty as the rest of them!
During the Toronto Waterfront festival, both vessels will be there, and one or both of them are available for group or adult sails. Book early to get this opportunity for a behind the scenes – up close look at the Tall Ships visiting Toronto this summer on Canada Day weekend. Check out the Group Sail flier
Trainees participating in Toronto Brigantine’ s Course #2 summer sail will participate in Leg 1 of the Great Lake Challenge down to Bay City leaving from Toronto.
