      Tall Ship - St. Lawrence II - Coming to Wasaga under Siege 2010



      Wasaga under Siege 2010 is excited to announce that the Tall Ship - St.
      Lawrence II will be coming to partake in the Saturday evening battle as part
      of the American Navy. The St. Lawrence II will support the landing of
      American troops with cannon and musket fire as the Americans try to land and
      establish themselves on the beach.



      Naval re-enactors will also have an opportunity to sail on the St. Lawrence
      II and partake in the battle aboard ship. We have a limited amount of spots
      for naval re-enactors that would like to sail and partake in the battle. We
      are looking for armed naval personnel with muskets and small cannons to be
      part of the St. Lawrence II crew for the Saturday evening battle. You would
      depart from the Port of Collingwood for a 3 hour sail to Wasaga Beach,
      partake in the evening battle and then be disembarked via bateau from the
      ship to Nancy Island.



      The St. Lawrence II was designed in 1952 by Francis MacLachlan and Mike
      Eames expressly for youth sail training. Gord Workman and Grant MacLachlan
      were also key figures in the development and initial fund raising of what is
      today the longest running youth sail training organization in the world.
      The ship is built of all welded steel to very high safety standards, with an
      overall length of 72 feet, a deck length of 60 feet, a beam of 15 feet, and
      a draft of 8.5 feet. The rig is that of the traditional brigantine with
      square sails on the foremast and for-and-aft sails on the main. In almost
      half a century afloat, the "St. Lawrence II" has shown her flag from Lake
      Huron to the north-east Atlantic seaboard, proudly representing Kingston and
      Canada in a number of exciting Tall Ship gatherings and special maritime
      events.



      If you or your group are interested in being aboard the St. Lawrence II for
      the sail and battle on Saturday afternoon and evening please e-mail at
      davidbrunelle@... for more information ASAP.
