Friends of the Brigantine were hard at it today… getting it in ship shape.
They were getting the “St. Lawrence 2” ready for an inspection by Transport Canada …. and the start of another summer of sailing.
The St. Lawrence 2 will spend the summer sailing from Hamilton to Canada’s east coast.
The tall ship — along with a small crew — take over a dozen youth on the voyage teaching them sailing skills, leadership and teamwork.
“As a general rule we try to bring one in four kids on that have been typically recommended to us by organizations like Childrens Aid and the Pathways people and there are others around the city.”
