Tall ships from all over the world will make their way up Broad Sound and into the main channel of Boston Harbor before proceeding to their berthing areas. Classic schooners, grand clippers, barques and brigs—all evoking the great Age of Sail—will participate in this, the most spectacular Tall Ships procession to take place in Boston since 2000.
