Rendez-Vous Regatta 2017 – Cruise in Company 2 – Cruising Canada: Miramichi to Quebec. Cruising instead of racing, so it is time to enjoy not only the sailing and all activities involved, but also the amazing nature of Canada! On the way to Quebec, we will also stop to explore the city of Saguenay. Situated along the world-famous salmon fishing river, the city of Miramichi offers cultural experiences that allow you to discover the heritage of the region and its people. If you’ve ever tangled with the mighty Atlantic salmon, you know the fish tales are true. Maybe you will catch your own salmon on board! Open for all Windseekers,minimum age 15 years.

Ports

Miramichi is a city at the mouth of Miramichi river in a Canadian New Brunswick province. Its unique culture is a blend of Mi'kmaq, Acadian, English, Scottish, and Irish traditions. For a taste of the culture visit New Brunswick Potato World Museum or, if you have more of a sweet tooth, the Chocolate Museum. After you've worked up your appetite sit down in one of many restaurants to enjoy a fresh local salmon.

Quebec is the oldest port in Canada with the Old Quebec district declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site. If you're a nature lover, you cannot miss the Montmorency Falls, and if you prefer art, the National Museum of Fine Arts of Quebec is the place to go. Visit the aquarium for the unique exprience of witnessing polar bears from underwater and take a stroll through the Old Quebec, declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO.
