A true summer adventure, sailing to France from Canada aboard the Volvo 60 Spirit of Adventure!
The Spirit of Canada Ocean Challenges team announces our first trip to St Pierre to celebrate St. Bastille Day in France.
Imagine departing historic Lunenburg, Nova Scotia and sailing into the Atlantic all the way to France..in less than two days. St. Pierre is an Island owned by France in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean, just off Newfoundland and only two days aboard the Volvo 60. Upon arrival you are immediately immersed in the European culture with fresh baguettes, croissants and great French wine and hospitality.
The National holiday of France in Saint-Pierre & Miquelon happens on July 14th to celebrate the end of the French revolution. This holiday has become a very popular event for it’s musical and cultural celebrations.
Only two days of sailing from Lunenburg to St. Pierre it’s a must do event for those that don’t have enough time for a full transatlantic but would still like to go somewhere exotic, participate in festivities and either get back on the boat to sail it back to Canada on Air St. Pierre or continue traveling through the Maritimes.
