The TALL SHIPS 1812 Tour is a Pan Provincial event travelling throughout Ontario during the summer of 2013. These majestic sailing vessels, replicas of the naval war of 1812, will sail to 15 Ontario ports this summer to commemorate the bicentennial of the War of 1812. On June 29-30 of the Canada Day weekend, three of the tall ships made a stop at the inner harbour in Port Dalhousie. The public had the opportunity to get on board and tour the international fleet of majestic ships, which included The Lynx, The Pride of Baltimore II and the Unicorn, the only tall ship in the world manned by an all female crew. Official opening ceremonies were held at the Canadian Legion Branch 350, Port Dalhouise.
