The regatta, organised by Sail Training International, will sail from Greenwich to Quebec in Canada, to mark the 150th anniversary of the Canadian Confederation.
The fleet of up to 40 large Class A and B Tall Ships will gather for four days in Greenwich and Woolwich before setting sail for Canada via Sines in Portugal, Bermuda and Boston.
Following the success of the Tall Ships Regatta 2014, which attracted 1.1million visitors, the Royal Borough of Greenwich is proud to welcome back a fleet of Tall Ships to the River Thames.
The ships will be anchored in the Thames alongside two Tall Ships festival villages at the Maritime Greenwich UNESCO World Heritage Site in Greenwich town centre, and the Royal Arsenal Riverside in Woolwich.
Come down to enjoy maritime entertainment, live music and fireworks from Thursday 13 April to Sunday 16 April, before a huge Parade of Sail starting at 5pm from Deptford Creek on Sunday 16th.
The whole Tall Ships fleet will join the Parade of Sail down the Thames to the sea, before crossing the Atlantic and arriving in Quebec on 18 July 2017.
