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 firstname.lastname@example.org
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
