The Tall Ship Fleet is returning to Navy Pier, and Tall Ship Windy is very glad to have them as her guests. For five days, starting Wednesday July 27, 2016, the fleet of Tall Ships will be at Navy Pier and Tall Ship Windy, Chicago’s Tall Ship Ambassador is, once again, honored to lead the Parade of Sail, and welcome the fleet and their crews to Chicago for this spectacular event.

The Pepsi Tall Ships Chicago is the latest in the series, starting in 2003 and also hosted by Windy, where a fleet of visiting Tall Ships has come to Chicago for everyone to share. This event, based at Tall Ship Windy’s home dock on Navy Pier, will add the grace of Tall Ship masts to the Chicago city skyline as a reminder of the years before when Chicago was one of the busiest seaports in the world. In the 2016 Chicago version of the event, many Tall Ships (around 20) will be offering boarding tours, or dockside viewing and some will also be offering sailing tours.

The highlight of the week will undoubtedly be the Parade of Sail where all the ships, with their sails opened, will be welcomed to Navy Pier and Chicago by the welcome committee. The Parade can be viewed from shore but is best viewed from the deck on a ship like Windy. The Parade is Wednesday, boards at 1:30 PM, and sets out to the parade route for a 3pm start time. The parade will last about 1.5 hours. Be a part of this spectacular event on Tall Ship Windy, as a participant in the parade!

Windy is offering many cruises every day, with many times to choose from, ending each day with a FIREWORKS cruise! Please support your local, family owned Tall Ship, as she celebrates her 20th year in Chicago!
