Bosun School in Lunenburg

How goes the Bosun School, one might ask? Going very well indeed, it is. Since arrival in Lunenburg our participants (from Canada, USA, Finland, Iceland and Denmark) have been very busy! They have been fixing and repairing boats, rowing boats, sailing boats, moving boats, bending sails, handling sails, sending sail down, making knots, splicing ropes, making seizings, splicing wire, serving wire. They have been helping on schooners and sailing them too; everything drops if a schooner is to go sailing this day. They have even been building a boat. Soon we move into sailmaking….
