Square Topsail Schooner Pics

As I was heading out for a sail on Saturday I spotted this beauty passing through Gabriola Passage. I ran and grabbed the camera and snapped a couple of quick ones (one foot on the wheel). As you can see it was a great day for sailing!

Topsail schooners are the best looking boats. They spell "adventure."

They do spell adventure. You almost feel you're in an age before all land had been charted.

Wish I could have got a shot with its canvas up but it must have gone into Silva Bay since I didn't see it out in the strait.
