Tall Ships Race from Boston to Charlottetown

Welcome in the voyage community: BOSTON, US - CHARLOTTETOWN, CA

It's time to race! This voyage will start with the Sail Boston Tall Ships Festival, giving us a chance to check out our competition before the race. During the voyage we will be busy with trimming sails, observing the weather to decide on the fastest route, and of course keeping an eye on our competitors via updates from the race committee. After crossing the finish line, there will be some time to relax and perhaps explore the canal up to Canso before arrival in Charlottetown in the company of the fleet of tall ships.

Thumb drive and chocolate: Last two things I need to get for the voyage. In past voyages the thumb drive has been invaluable for downloading a copy of shared file of crew photos and videos. Chocolate needs no explanation! See everybody in 2 days. Safe travels. PS: I will be working on Schooner When & If Wednesday afternoon and evening for their day sails. Stop by and say "hi".

Hello fellow crew mates! I'm so excited to be making this trip to Charlottetown! My husband is from the Boston area and we will be driving from Minnesota. I have sailed on several Tallships years ago as professional crew including the Re-enactment of Australias Bicentennial. My Great friend Penny Keally invited me to sail this leg and will be sailing mate! So 👀ing forward to fun in the sun and a lil friggin in the rigging- only hope I can get my buttock over the futtocks! I hold a USCG lisense Mate 1600 ton. This is going to be sooo much fun! There is a ferry shuttle from Logan to Boston! Cheers Kelly

I will be sailing on the Boston/Charlottetown leg. Is anyone staying in Charlottetown for the day after arriving? I am traveling alone and will have to catch a flight probably the next day back to WV. Do we know when we arrive in Charlottetown?

I am from Cape Cod and love sailing around on the bay but have never sailed on a vessel of this size. My cousin Jack and I are both going on this voyage and are looking forward to an adventure. Look forward to meeting you all!

Does anyone have any advice on how best to travel from Logan airport into Boston? Cab, Uber, other...?

Kathleen · 7 months

Is anyone from this group remaining aboard for the next leg, from Charlottetown to Miramichi? We are doing so, currently making our plans after disembarking at Miramichi. Wondering about others' plans.

Greetings everyone! I have followed Europa online for years and am so looking forward to being aboard! We do most of our sailing on the Chesapeake Bay, but sailing aboard a tall ship is an amazing experience and a rare treat. Racing makes it even more fun! Looking forward to meeting everyone. Won't be long now...
