   Organised by Tall Ships America®

TALL SHIPS CHALLENGE® is an annual series organised by Tall Ships America to promote the sail training experience, foster international cultural exchange and keep alive the rich maritime heritage represented by the tall ships community.

In between visits to a number of maritime festivals the tall ships take part in races, crewed by young people who may never have sailed before, running educational programmes that help help them to develop both personally and professionally.

The 2019 series will see a TALL SHIPS CHALLENGE® fleet visit a number of American and Canadian ports across the Great Lakes with a number of popular port stops alongside a number of new ones too. Given the scale of the tour in 2019, the Canadian ports (Toronto, Midland, Sarnia, Kingsville and Brockville) have come together collectively under the event TALL SHIPS CHALLENGE® ONTARIO.

The 2019 series launches at Redpath Waterfront Festival in Toronto before heading on to events Buffalo, Cleveland, Bay City, Green Bay, Kenosha, Sarnia, Kingsville and Erie before the finale festival in Brockville.
