Tall Ships Duluth 2010

July 28 - August 3, 2010
Duluth, MN

Join Tall Ships Duluth 2010 for a once-in-a-lifetime experience on the shores of the worldís greatest lake. Itís a rare chance to catch a glimpse, step aboard, or even set sail on some of the grandest ships of yore. Featuring a fleet of international vessels racing to six cities in the U.S. and Canada, this is Lake Superiorís only port of call for the Great Lakes United Tall Ships Challenge® 2010. Festival grounds open Thursday, July 29, with sounds and sensations ranging from a pirate school for kids to four days of performances of Gilbert & Sullivanís Pirates of Penzance, a musical presented by the UMD School of Fine Arts. Come for the grand entry, departure and everything in between. Two important initiatives sail along with the tall ships: water conservation education and youth sail training!

The Great Lakes are a fragile ecosystem. Despite their immensity, they are especially vulnerable to degradation. Tall ships represent one of the most sustainable forms of transportation, making these races one of the most environmentally friendly on the planet.
