Toronto Brigantine participating in Montreal Tall Ship Festival Sep 2011

One of the first times Pathfinder went to Montreal was for Expo 67!  And we are back again this year.

Toronto Brigantine is excited to be invited to participate in the Montreal Tall Ship Festival. This is the second second edition of Tall Ships on the Quays – and the first time that we are joining in. We were participating  in the Tall Ships on the Quays event with six other tall ships including:  the Niagara, the  Pride of Baltimore II, the Lynx, the Challenge, the Pathfinder and the St-Lawrence II.

Pathfinder sailed part way from from Toronto to Montreal with Challenge.  Here is a photo on the St Lawrence river.

Pathfinder sailing out of Kingston.   Maurice Smith said he was going to be out of town, so not sure whether the crew saw him on this trip or not.

Perhaps we will see you on the way home! and when the crew gets home, hopefully we will have some pictures and stories to share of our days in Montreal.
