With a forecast calling for thunderstorms, family and friends gathered on the shores of Picton Bay to christen and launch “Sea Shadow”, Canada’s first St. Ayles skiff. This celebration marked the culmination of a five month “labour of love” project.
With bag pipes playing, a wreath of white oak and ash branches on her bow to ensure safe returns, “Sea Shadow” was carried into the water and taken for her inaugural row. Mother Nature was kind, and held off for the two hour celebration so everyone could eat, drink and be merry!
