Boston has been selected as a port of call for the 2017 International Rendez-Vous Regatta. This historic sailing celebration will include over 40 participating ships from around the world. The ships which partake in this trans-Atlantic regatta begin sail from Royal Greenwich, UK, race to Portugal, Bermuda, and then arrive for a week-long celebration at the only US port, Boston. The program will begin with a featured parade into Boston Harbor on Saturday, June 17th. Following the parade, these magnificent ships will be on display and available for viewing throughout the week.
