AHOY THERE!

The Tall Ship Challenge travels through the Great Lakes every three years. Although there is no Tall Ship Festival scheduled for 2017, we are already in the planning stages for the next festival in the summer of 2019!

The Tall Ship Festival presented by Nicolet National Bank is thrilled to announce the World’s Largest Rubber Duck will be nesting at this year’s festival!

Known as “Mama Duck” she weighs 11 tons which is roughly the weight of 5 1/2 cars and weighs more than the heaviest elephant ever recorded in the world. At 61 feet tall she is taller than a six story building. You won’t have to “duck” for selfies!!

“Mama Duck” will float alongside nine ships already announced for the 2016 festival: When and If, Appledore IV, U.S. Brig Niagara , Pride of Baltimore II, Windy, S/V Denis Sullivan , Madeline, El Galeón and Draken Harald Hårfagre.

Mama Duck will make a great background for pictures but will not be available for boarding.  She will be at the festival all three days during the scheduled festival hours!
