Description

Did you know that the schooner When and If was built for US General George Patton? Or that the barque Europa is over one hundred years old? Tall ships are steeped in mystery and romance, and this year over thirty will visit Maritime ports for Rendez-Vous 2017, a spectacular event ten years in the works. In this colourful, photo-filled book, Allan Billard tells you everything you need to know about the schooners, galleons, brigantines, and other dazzling tall ships participating in this extravaganza--and what to look for at the sixteen ports they will grace. Rendez-Vous 2017 is a signature event of Canada's 150th celebrations, and is certain to attract huge crowds. This book will help preserve the memories.
