Tall Ships Challenge
August 29 - September 2
The US Brig Niagara, sponsored by Miller Boat Line, will be docked at Put-in-Bay during the 2013 Tall Ships Challenge. Joining the Niagara are the Tall Ship Windy, sponsored by Heineman Winery, and the Hallie & Matthew.
Other ships will be docked at Catawba Island, Port Clinton, Kelleys Island, Middle Bass Island, and Canada ports Amherstburg, Kingsville, Leamington, and Windsor.
The Tall Ships will be sailing into Lake Erie from the Detroit River on August 29 and will travel to their respective ports. A re-enactment of the Battle of Lake Erie will take place on September 2 at the battle site, located about 10 miles north of Put-in-Bay (South Bass Island).
The Tall Ships Challenge is hosted by the Perry Group with individual vessels sponsored by local ports and/or businesses.
