Peacemaker to make its way into harbour tonight

The Peacemaker is the first of four tall ships to arrive near Pugwash. The ship is expected to arrive in the harbour tonight with the other three ships set to arrive Saturday morning.

PUGWASH - The first of four tall ships to be featured in this weekend's HarbourFest celebration in Pugwash is nearing the village.

The Peacemaker left Port Hawkesbury last night and was travelling along the Gulf Shore this afternoon, despite a lack of wind in the Northumberland Strait.

The ship is expected to make its way into the village during this evening's high tide.

The other three ships are straggling behind and should arrive in the village early Saturday morning. 

Joining the Peacemaker in Pugwash will be Appledore V, Picton Castle and Sorea. The Appledore IV, HMS Bounty and Gazela will join the ship Hector in Pictou.

Theodore Tugboat is scheduled to be in the harbour on Sunday.

HarbourFest officially kicks off tonight with the opening ceremonies at 5 p.m.

    A three master just snook into my little home bay (Mudge Bay - on the North Channel of Lake Huron). Tucked herself down on the lee side of the west arm of our bay - good move - some possibility of T-storms tonight - and that is the most sheltered part of the bay for storms approaching from the west. I'm guessing - from the configuration - plus the fact that it is advertised to be in Midland for a sailpast on the 24th - that the vessel is the Peacemaker. I will give her a hail in the morning - since the local marina hadn't heard from her before they closed up for the night - and we do get regular visits during the summer from both Pathfinder and Playfair.
