International Rendez-vous 2017

In 2017 the Jolie Brise will be taking part in the International Rendez-vous 2017 Tall Ships Regatta – a 7,000 nautical mile transatlantic race visiting Portugal, Bermuda, America, Canada and France.

Rendez-vous 2017 Tall Ships Regatta is a maritime celebration that offers all participants a unique chance to embark on this great adventure, whilst commemorating the rich history of sailing in Canada and around the world. This epic event marks the 150th anniversary of the Canadian Confederation through its founders and founding provinces.

This will be a sailing adventure of a lifetime, and Dauntsey’s pupils are invited to join in the Second Leg of the journey - from Canada back to the UK. There are 4 port options to choose from.

This is an incredible chance to sail in the wake of the great explorers and to be part of an experience you will never forget.
