Endangered Schooners List

Although the catalyst for the creation of the Save Our Schooners Committee was the current plight of the schooner Ernestina, the committee's charge includes endangered schooners nationwide. To that end, a first task for the committee is to create a list of such vessels and to prioritize it in terms of their significance and state of peril.

We would welcome nominations to our list. Candidates can be submitted to me at

NSSA Race Week

Lunenburg Yacht Club, Lunenburg, NS

The Nova Scotia Schooner Association Annual Race Week will be held from Monday, August 14th through Saturday, August 19th at Lunenburg Yacht Club. Schooners arrive Sunday the 13th and depart Sunday the 20th. Races take place Monday - Saturday (Thursday is a layday, but there is a singlehanded race for those who haven't had enough by then!).
I strongly encourage anyone who can make the trip to give it a go. The Novies are extremely hospitable and the location and racing unsurpassed. This is one of the best regattas on the planet!
