Film work and harbour cruises

Schooner Bluenose II.

“Rolling, speed, drone, ACTION!!” I could never have imagined myself in the film business but here we are once again. This week the ship has been chartered by FlyOver Canada as a lead attraction in an iMax format drone shoot. Film work is a strange affair where the art and vision of a director, writer and producer meet head on with the technical possibilities and physics of everyday life. 

Pictou to Lunenburg via Northern Cape Breton

Home tomorrow, the 12th of July. Sometimes it seems like we left yesterday, sometimes like we have been gone forever. By the time we return to Lunenburg we will have travelled close to 900 nautical miles and have been gone for just over three weeks. The principal mission for the trip was to complete the required inspection while the ship was out of the water. Though events, beyond our control, the yard delayed hauling us for some time and then could not get us back in the water before the long weekend.
