The Great Provincetown Schooner Regatta celebrates the role of the Great Atlantic fishing bank schooner in Provincetown’s maritime history and allows visitors to experience these historic vessels in port and at sea. The Regatta shares the story of Provincetown’s place in the traditional fishing industry and of Cape Cod’s past, when commerce and transportation truly ‘ran with the wind.’ Located at the outermost tip of Cape Cod, Provincetown was the first great fishing port on the eastern seaboard dating back to the time of the Norsemen. Many of the leading fishing vessels that plied the waters of the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans throughout America’s early maritime history called Provincetown home. At the height of the commercial fishing in the 19th century, Provincetown harbored as many as 100, 90-ton Schooners and 700 vessels. Come learn, have fun and see one of the most unique landscapes in New England!
