Cannon Battle Sails
Saturday September 9th & Sunday September 10th


One of the best ways to experience the Ocean Institute Tall Ships Festival is by sailing aboard a tall ship during the popular mock cannon battles.  Enjoy blasting cannons, towering rigging, bustling decks and the magnificence of canvas full of wind.  Work with the crew hauling up sail or simply sit back and enjoy the spectacular demonstration of skill, knowledge and survival!
