Greenport will be the second port to host the Tall Ships fleet Memorial Day Weekend (May 26th – 28th) as part of the TALL SHIPS CHALLENGE® Race Series. The sail begins in Savannah, Georgia (May 3-7), races up the East Coast to Greenport, Long Island, then to Newport, Rhode Island (July 6-9) and Halifax, Nova Scotia (July 19-23). Once at port, visitors can board the training ships and meet with crews who are enjoying a “sea education.”
Viewing the GREENPORT TALL SHIPS is a one of a kind experience! Ticket holders will board the extraordinary sailing vessels and interact with crew members and sailing trainees. See the confirmed ships and the calendar and schedule of events on the Greenport Village website. One of the many fun events planned on the North Fork for Memorial Day Weekend, so come on out and join the fun!
This year’s TALL SHIPS CHALLENGE will commemorate the Bicentennial of the War of 1812, with celebrations and festivals along the Atlantic Coast. Precise race routes and festival schedules will be announced soon.
