June 4th is nearly here - the day that Tillicum returns back to her natural habitat - the water. She has been on dry (?) land since the end of October and is patiently awaiting the launching by crane this Saturday. Cleaning, painting, engine maintenance, batteries, and all manner of nautical necessities have been attended to. Now - the true test - will she be able to enter back into the water smoothly and carefully without taking on too much water in her bilge. The days have been moist, so we believe she has not dried out too much. Pics will be posted to alert any followers! Join us for the fun this Saturday - early morning, we believe, at the Bridgewater Marina.
It was a great day to be out on the LaHave. We had a wonderful time hoisting, hauling, tacking, tillering, eating, and enjoying the summer sun.
Yesterday was a grand day for sailing and enjoying life. We headed out and had some great Eagle and Osprey sightings. The winds were perfect for beam sailing. The air was warm, and the mood was light. Tillicum had the bone in her teeth as they say, and whisked down the river at 7kts! Looking forward to more fun and adventures today!
The day has finally arrived! Tillicum and Cap'n Russ are very excited to bring all eager schooner adventurers our onto the LaHave. We've got a dock put in, gathered up some good food and refreshments, and have brushed up on our history and songs from the the era. We're looking forward to meeting up with you and spending time viewing the world from the water. There is also a chance to explore the banks of the River and even enjoy the sights along the river if desired! Give us a call to book a spot. We have life jackets, safety equipment, and room for young and old. All you need is a light jacket and an eager heart! See you soon!
