The City of Sarnia and Tourism Sarnia Lambton are pleased to announce that they will be bringing the historical Canadian icon, Bluenose II, to Sarnia next summer. The ship that’s adorned the Canadian dime since 1937 will be leading a fleet of majestic tall ships.
The Sarnia TALL SHIPS® Celebration, part of the Great Lakes Series, will take place August 9-11, 2019. Private functions will take place on August 9th, followed by public viewing on August 10th - 11th. Sarnia’s waterfront will be transformed into a nautical wonderland with a fleet of tall ships positioned along the shores of the St. Clair River in Centennial Park. The Bluenose II will be joined by the Picton Castle, also based in Lunenburg, Nova Scotia. This ship has travelled the world and is a fully certified and registered Cook Islands tall ship whose mission is deep-ocean sail training and long-distance education voyages. It is also a 181-foot, three-masted vessel, currently sailing through Bali, Indonesia on its seventh voyage around the globe. Other confirmed participating tall ships include Empire Sandy, Fair Jeanne and Appledore IV.
The full fleet of ships taking part in the tour will be announced in the coming months.
