Voyageur Canoes & Longboat Flotilla - Nottawasaga River

Wasaga under Siege 2010 is excited to announce that a re-enactment of a convoy of voyageur canoes and longboats will be re-enacting a trek of the Nottawasaga River from Schooner Town Park to Nancy Island Historic Site.  Local residents and spectators alike will have a great opportunity to watch as hearty re-enactors experience the environment and hardships that original native, voyageurs, sailors and soldiers experienced first hand as they paddled and rowed down this historic waterway.  Wasaga Beach residents, especially those who reside along the river and other public spectators who show their loyalty to King George III by cheering on our hearty crews, flying the British colours or showing their loyalty in other forms will receive a token of the King's appreciation in the form of a musket or cannon salute.   The flotilla will leave Schooner Town Park on Friday, July 23rd at 2:00pm and make their way down river to Nancy Island Historic Site arriving at the island no later than 4:00pm.

Re-enactors who are interested in taking part in this river excursion should contact David Brunelle at davidbrunelle@rogers.com and specify whether you would like to take part as a paddler in the canoes or a rower in the longboats.  Participants are encouraged to bring their own life jacket and paddle if you have them as there will only be a limited amount of extra's available
