      General Signal
      January 27th, 2008

      Gun Ketch 'Royaliste'
      To Attend
      2008 School of the Sailor

      The 71-foot replica square-topsail Gun Ketch 'Royaliste' , Captain Bergman, now lying in the Carolinas, has indicated by intelligences received this day that the vessel will be present at Discovery Harbour, Penetanguishene, Ontario, for the 2008 School Of The Sailor, July 18-20, 2008.

      'Royaliste' is a well-known vessel to the film and re-enactment community, and is presently operating on detached service on the East Coast of North America, though now having its home port on San Francisco Bay. Captain Bergman and his crew are noted for creating an excellent historical experience, and the ketch is armed with both swivels and long guns, which feature in the vessel's operation.

      "Royaliste' will join the Naval Establishments flagship, the brigantine 'Saint Lawrence II', and the schooners "Bee" and 'Tecumseth" (the latter two lying in Ordinary), and the rapidly growing Longboat Flotilla being assembled by the event Chairman, Lt. Thomas Hurlbut, and his Committee, to provide an excellent naval atmosphere in the beautiful and historic setting of Discovery Harbour.

      I have the Honour to be
      Gentlemen
      Yours with great Regard
