I look forward to attending and will bring a collection of 'period' hand-forged tools and would be pleased to participate in Education Day.

I look forward to attend and can bring a war 1812 model ship handcrafted from scratch and would be pleased to participate in Education Day.

Do I need tickets to the flight of the Royal George and if so, how do I get them?

@Ruth - You do not need tickets to watch the Flight of the Royal George - just grab your space at one of the viewing stations early!

I was wondering if you could provide a list of the Tall Ships attending this event & where they would be moored? I plan to sail to Bath, Amherstview on the days of the events to photograph the ships.

Thanks in advance

Thanks for your question, Christopher. We have posted a revised schedule which includes re-enactment camp and tall ship docking information.

At the Lafarge 1812 Discovery Centre in Bath, Tall Ships Brig Niagara, St. Lawrence II & Caledonian will be docked.

At the Neilson Store Dock on Amherst Island the Tall Ship La Revenante will be docked.

Maps are included in the above schedule.

We do ask if you are planning to photograph the re-enactment that you register as media and review our terms. Also, given security and insurance concerns around the re-enactment, please do let us know of your plans if you are intending to be sailing during the re-enactment.

We have a daughter sailing as a student on the Brig Niagara out of Erie to participate in this event, (as the Royal George), and I wonder if anyone can post photos or video of the ships. Where can we find pictures or video records of the events this weekend? We live too far away to attend, but would love to see what it looks like. It sounds like a fantastic time! Thanks

I took lots of photos and some short video clips. This event was absolutely fantastic. I'm so proud of the town of Bath for hosting this event.
