Mahone Bay Heritage Awards

Heritage Awards

Apr 11, 2017

We had a brief history of the schooner Atlantica in the last issue of ONBOARD. If you’d like to know more about the boat, her origins and owners, and you live near Mahone Bay, you’re in luck. The Mahone Bay Founders Society are having their annual dinner and awards presentation on April 22nd at the Mahone Bay Legion.

The guest speaker will be Tye Burt owner of the schooner Atlantica. Sounds like an interesting evening. Tickets are $25, for more information check out or call 902-624-9293.

We are departing Midland for a week of visiting some of the islands and anchorages within Georgian Bay’s “30,000 Islands” – specifically those along the western edge. These are the less protected islands which face toward wide-open Georgian Bay, where boaters often have to depart the small craft route and work a little harder at setting the hook but are then rewarded with magnificent western views, stunning sunsets, and so much to explore!
