Rendez-Vous 2017 Tall Ships Regatta @ RB Greenwich

Once again the River Thames in London will play host to a gathering of tall ships as part of the combined Rendez-Vous 2017 Tall Ships Regatta / Sail Royal Greenwich event taking place over the Easter weekend in April 2017.

The Rendez-Vous 2017 regatta is to celebrating the 150th anniversary of the founding of the Canadian Confederation and is being marked by a number of tall ships travelling 7,000 nautical miles across the Atlantic with port calls in seven different countries and taking part in five races.

Also attending the event will be the Sea Cadets as one of the chosen charity partners and they will bring the TS Royalist to the Thames again.

The following tables show the expected attendees and will be updated as details are confirmed. As always with such things participation subject to change and until it has arrived on the Thames – it hasn’t! 

It is expected that up to 20 ships will be moored at Woolwich and there will be a firework display on the evening of 15th April. Other vessels will be moored at Greenwich where firework displays will take place on each of the other evenings during the event.
