ship

The Scottish Studies Society invites you and your family and friends
to join us on our 23rd Annual Tall Ship Cruise on Sunday, August 31
aboard Canada’s largest sailing ship, the Empire Sandy. Join in the
fun and help keep the Scottish pioneering spirit alive while
celebrating the anniversary of the arrival of Scottish pioneer
immigrant ship “Hector” which landed in Nova Scotia in 1773.

Singers, dancers and the sound of the pipes will accompany and
entertain you with songs and music from Scotland and Canada as you
cruise under full sail out on Lake Ontario. Add to that the sound of
the pipes, the colour of the tartan, the sentiment of the folk music
and the thrill of Highland dancing and you have a day to remember.
This is a unique opportunity for you to share the experience of a
voyage on a tall ship under full sail and recapture the spirit of
Canada’s pioneers!

There will be two cruises: the morning cruise with special activities
for children and families boards at 11:00 a.m., the afternoon cruise
boards at 2:00 p.m.

Tickets purchased in advance are $25 for adults and $5 for children
(15 and under). Tickets purchased on day of sail: $30 adults, $8.00
children. Food and drinks are available for purchase on board the
ship.

For reservations or more information, please telephone Maggie McEwan
at 905-301-5475 or mail at magmcewan@nullnullgmail.com. Tickets will be mailed
to you up to one week prior to the event or held for you at the dock
thereafter.

You can also reserve online at www.scottishstudies.com.

The Empire Sandy will be docked on the south side of Queens Quay West,
directly opposite Lower Spadina Avenue, beside the Music Garden.
Parking is readily available in the vicinity of Harbourfront but be
sure to leave yourself time to find a spot.

We look forward to seeing you on board!
