    Beautiful shot, George. It’s not too often we get to see these lovelies under sail.

  • Thanks Mike. It’s not that often that I see them myself any more. This one was the classic “right place,right time”! Just happened to be nearing the Canso Causeway connecting C.B. to N.S. when I saw her coming. Made a dash to the closest shoreline to get her in the clear.
