Vessels are docking in Halifax Harbour today for the international tall ships regatta. Thirty tall ships are expected to dock in Nova Scotia as part of the transatlantic race. The regatta spans seven-thousand nautical miles over five months, starting in Great Britain and finishing in France. The provincial government says it’s spending one-and-a-half million dollars to help communities host the final leg of the race. Between August 4th and 6th a number of tall ships will make stops in Sydney, St. Peter’s and Louisbourg. The ships will also visit Digby on August 15th and take part in a sail past of Annapolis Royal on August 16th.
