About the Tall Ships Race

Once a year, a fleet of tall ships assembles in Boston for the Gloucester Schooner Festival before racing to the next stop on their tour. The starting line for the race is off Gloucester. Join us as we sail with the tall ships on this exciting day!

Fame sails out from Salem to join the fleet for the pre-race jockeying and, of course, the glorious start! It’s an experience like no other to be among these beautiful sails. Come aboard the Fame to share this unique adventure with us! It’s a memorable day of sailing, history, competition, and a lot of fun.

What to Bring

  • We recommend sensible shoes, sunscreen, hats, and sunglasses. It’s cooler on the water, so it’s a good idea to bring a jacket or sweatshirt.
  • Beer, wine, soft drinks, and snacks are available for purchase on board the ship. No coolers or BYOB are allowed on the sail — sorry!
