Local Programs >> Social Events >> Bastille Day 2018 Sunset Sail


Sunday July 15th, 2018 from 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm - So sorry.... we have reached our maximum capacity. We have started a waiting list in case someone cannot particiate. Please get in touch and let you know you want to be added to the list.

A repeat of last year's sail! (Pictures of our 2017 Sail available here)
We will be sponsoring a sunset cruise on Casco Bay aboard one of the bay's summer residents, the Bagheera or the Wendameen, to celebrate the French National Day known as Bastille Day in the US. The actual date of the French celebration is July 14th (la prise de la Bastille de 1789) but... summer festivities are such that we will be celebrating a day later. Please join us for a casual evening sail on Casco Bay among Francophones and Francophiles alike!

  • Wear your best sailing attire with canotier hats and all,
  • Bring a picnic basket with finger foods and drinks to share (yes, wine and beer are allowed on board),
  • Enjoy a two-hour sail (speak French as much or as little as you’d like) with friends,
  • Bring your French flag if you have one,
  • Prepare to sing La Marseillaise!
Where: Portland harbor and Casco Bay
Date: Sunday July 15 from 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm
Cost: $35/person    
 
Sign up below! Space is obviously limited... Once we reach our maximum number, registrations will be closed.
 
PS: Pour vous préparer à chanter La Marseillaise
 
Allons enfants de la Patrie,
Le jour de gloire est arrivé!
Contre nous de la tyrannie,
L'étendard sanglant est levé, (bis)
Entendez-vous dans les campagnes
Mugir ces féroces soldats?
Ils viennent jusque dans vos bras
Égorger vos fils, vos compagnes!

Aux armes, citoyens,
Formez vos bataillons,
Marchons, marchons!
Qu'un sang impur
Abreuve nos sillons!
