Sturgeon Bay, Algoma included in Tall Ships visit

Nine ships will call Sturgeon Bay home for a night in July before racing past Algoma the next day as a part of the Tall Ships visit to northeast Wisconsin. Sponsored by Nicolet National Bank, the overnight Monday stay in Sturgeon Bay and the Tuesday race from Algoma to Kenosha take place after the Tall Ships Festival July 26th through 28th in Green Bay. Thousands of people lined the canal and visited ships when they docked in Sturgeon Bay in 2016, which was good news for area businesses according to Sturgeon Bay Visitor Center Executive Director Pam Seiler.

A replica of the Santa Maria and the U.S. Brig Niagara will be among the nine ships making the weekend tour of the bay and the lake with the complete line-up to be finalized next month. Details about Sturgeon Bay’s Salute to Sail event will be released in the near future.
