Thanks to TBI Friend, Mr Tim Henrich, Master Jeweller

Thanks to TBI Friend, Mr Tim Henrich, Master Jeweller and owner of Henrich Jewellers in Owen Sound

Mr Tim Henrich, the Master Jeweller, has been a friend and supportor of Toronto Brigantine since 1995. Since then he has been engraving the Seamanship Award Knife. Captain Seann ODonoughue, the sponsor for the Seamanship Award, first met Mr Henrich when Seann purchased his wife’s wedding ring from Mr Henrich.

Toronto Brigantine has been able to capitalize on Mr Henrich’s experience in other ways. In 2003, he repaired the Pathfinder’s barometer which required a new glass cover.

Everything that Mr Henrich has done for Toronto Brigantine has been donated. He enjoys seeing the ships arrive in Owen Sound on an annual basis, and can remember as far back as four decades of the ships coming to Port.  He knows several youth in Owen Sound who have sailed on the Brigs, and have benefited from their experience.

Here is Mr Henrich hard at his work. (Photos taken by Captain O’Donaghue, May 2011)


Toronto Brigantine thanks you, Mr Henrich, for your ongoing support and we look forward to seeing you in Owen Sound again this summer.

Toronto Brigantine: Toronto’s only tall ship based youth sail training program, offering Summer Program for teenagers age 13 to 18 the opportunity to make new friends, learn new skills and gain a sense of accomplishment by learning to sail a tall ship around Great Lakes and Georgian Bay. With a stop over in Owen Sound most summers!  We are current accepting applications for our summer program and bursaries are available.  The Winter Program is when new officers are training and much of the boat maintenance work is done . This year alone the teenagers in the Winder program contributed over 10,000 volunteer hours and their work is just wrapping up as we prepare for our annual Blessing of the Fleet on Jun 18, 2011.
