Tall Ships 2000

Halifax, Nova Scotia

Part 2
Between July 19-24, the port of Halifax, NS, was invaded by a large fleet of Tall Ships, as a part of Tall Ships 2000. These ships came in all sizes, and represented a large number of different countries. On July 24, they participated in a large sail-past of the Halifax waterfront, and then left to race for their next port of call - Amsterdam.
