Join the R. Tucker Thompson at the annual Tall Ships Race! A light-hearted festival of sail between classic boats and tall ships departing from the historic village of Russell at 1200. Be part of the atmosphere of this special day and afterwards, join the crews of all the boats for the prize giving and afterwards enjoy the traditional Russell Boat Club Hangi.
