Captain’s log

A memorable trip to Southwest Nova Scotia

Time marches on and it's difficult to imagine that the crew are half way through their six month season with us. They have grown and changed a great deal and are currently living a life they could not really imagine when they interviewed for the position in the mid winter. What a life changing experience for a young person — it certainly changed mine!

New Adventures and Ties to the Past

It’s a day of remembrance on our good ship today. This week I had the honour to represent Bluenose II at the celebration of life for Capt. Douglas Himmelman. I sailed aboard Bluenose II as Capt. Himmelman’s bosun/3rd officer. This was one of those gifts life gives you that you do not understand until it has passed and done. Capt. H was such an accomplished mariner with a breadth of experience rarely seen today. The master mariners in the church were impressive in their own right, mariners whose careers I hold as exemplary.
