This beautiful American schooner paid a visit to the town of Sidney,Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada on Aug.30,2007, but unfortunately I wasn’t able to get her name or home port. If anyone should recognize her, please send me a BM and I’ll add the information.
In the background are some of the southern Gulf Islands of B.C.

    Looks beautifl George….very nice capture of this great looking boat !! Would have loved to see this with its sails up !

  • Hi Sean, yes I would have too. She just appeared one morning so I assume was a night arrival. Probably motored in to the anchorage. Sails would be very nice, I’m sure.

    An absolute beauty, George. Would love to have something like that! I saw one like her down in Newport, R.I. a number of years ago and got a shot off. Have to dig it up – maybe it’s the same one (but I doubt it!)

  • Well it could be possible..we get boats here from all over the East coast, Caribbean,etc. people who go on cruises for months. Sometimes they just stay a day like this one did, others will hang around for a few weeks..must be great to live like that for!

    I could handle that quite well, I think. We get quite a few going up or downriver, but not too many stop here. I’m lucky – I can see them from the front steps of my workplace. Even saw the Bounty sailing by. That was a kind of eerie “thrown back in time” feeling!
