Today is the big day folks! This afternoon at 2 p.m., participants in our fall dory building class will launch one freshly-baked Handline dory. Tradition requires a semi-secret initiation ceremony and a little row in the harbour to be sure she floats ~ if you’re in the greater Lunenburg area, feel free to drop by and cheer them on!
It’s been a great two weeks with this gang. They’ve done a first-rate job on their boat and we sincerely hope they’ve enjoyed their stay in ‘da Burg. I strongly suspect that yesterday’s visit to the restoration of Nova Scotia’s sailing ambassador, the Schooner Bluenose II, will be counted among the highlights. Many thanks to shipwright Bill Morton of the Lunenburg Shipyard Alliance for his highly informative tour.
