Over the Easter weekend in 2017 (13 – 16 April), Greenwich will host the Rendez-vous Tall Ships Regatta 2017. Marking the 150th anniversary of the Canadian Confederation, the event will see a fleet of around 40 large Class A and B Tall Ships set sail from Greenwich to Quebec, Canada, via Portugal, Bermuda and Boston.
From 13 to 16 April 2017, ships will be anchored at two festival sites in the royal borough - at the Maritime Greenwich UNESCO World Heritage Site in Greenwich town centre, and the Royal Arsenal Riverside in Woolwich.
The event will offer the opportunity to take a trip on a spectacular Tall Ship up the Thames picking up from Woolwich at the Royal Arsenal Pier. Sailing packages include an Afternoon Cruise, Fireworks Cruise and a VIP Evening Cruise.
With over 1.1million visitors attending the 2014 Regatta, it's set to be another wonderful well attended event.
