The creak of masts and flap of sails will fill the air in Sturgeon Bay this August as the city again hosts the return of the Parade of Sail of the Tall Ships Challenge Great Lakes. The flotilla of nine sailing vessels is expected to arrive in Sturgeon Bay late Wednesday afternoon, Aug. 3, after finishing the Lake Michigan portion of the Tall Ships Challenge race off of Algoma earlier in the day.
The parade and overnight stop in Sturgeon Bay is the prelude to the three-day Tall Ships Festival Aug. 5 -7 in Green Bay, one of the eight official port cities of the Tall Ships Challenge Great Lakes 2016.
