The Barque Picton Castle, a 179-foot, three-masted tall ship from Cook Islands in the South Pacific will head up a fleet of more than a half dozen  historic tall ships and other vessels -- the most tall ships ever to grace Cape Charles Town Harbor with the Fourth Annual Tall Ships At Cape Charles (TSCC) festival.   Tall ships decks will open for public tours during festival days June 13 and 14. Kids pirate sails ($35) aboard the Schooner Serenity three times daily. Reservations required.  Sunset and three-hour day sails on the Chesapeake Bay available with paid reservation; fees vary by ship.  Visit

Cape Charles is an official host port for this year's TALL SHIPS CHALLENGE series of port-to-port races. This is a rare opportunity to get up close and personal as you explore the decks and meet the crews of magnificent tall ships and encounter roving pirates, costumed re-enactors and all kinds of family fun throughout our historic town and harbor.  Enjoy delectable food, refreshing beverages, special childrens' activities, arts, crafts and collectibles vendors as well as music and entertainment by local performers. This is small town, family-friendly America the way it used to be.
