In 2013, the association “L’Armada de la liberté” -
“The Sails of Freedom” will be celebrating its 25th
anniversary and its 6th edition of the Armada that
is to be held from 6th to 16th June 2013. Millions
of visitors are once again expected along the quays
of the port of Rouen. They will enjoy concerts, gigantic
fireworks and plenty of other entertainments.
And of course, they will visit freely the 50 vessels
present. The finest and largest sailing ships, the most
modern warships and many other outstanding ships,
coming from all over the world, will have sailed up the
120 kilometres of the River Seine through the
beautiful landscapes of Normandy.
From Le Havre to Paris, the Armada has become a major unifying event along the River Seine.
