SS Keewatin moored at Giant's Tomb and alongside on the way to CPS Rendezvous
Our past commander, Steve Cartwright, viewed from his boat and photographed the SS Keewatin while she was moored at Giant's Tomb, awaiting her next port of call—Port McNicoll—where she's now in a new permanent berth. This photoshow also provides a glimpse of what the huge vessel looks like while she's on her way to Port McNicoll for the celebrations on June 22nd. Enjoy!
This year's event was another success. A record number of vessels turned out even though the Saturday weather forecast was less than ideal. The month of June continued its lack-lustre weather performance but that didn't stop our fun-loving members from joining in at Henry's Fish Restaurant at Sans Souci, the weekend of June 25th, 2011.
A wonderful bus trip to Peggy's Cove which included a visit to the Swiss Air Flight 111 Memorial. A surprise for the bus tour guests was an unplanned visit to the Lunenberg shipyards to see the rebuilding of the Bluenose II.
Early Summer 2010 Sans Souci Week-end Shakedown Cruise a Success
The Midland Squadron started the boating season right. Many members cruised to Henry's Fish Restaurant over the week-end of June 27th. Champlain called it a place without worries and that is still entirely appropriate.
The weather was warm but the way home on Sunday was less than ideal with fog rolling in and the waves increasing.

Paul Elliott welcomed us warmly. Helen LaVictoire and Jean Dick organized the social on the dock where we shared some great and various goodies before heading up to the restaurant for the traditional Henry's Fish dinner (or whatever). This is always a great way to start the boating season with a shakedown cruise.
