Schooner in Shelburne

21 September 2010 | Shelburne, Nova Scotia, Canada

We sailed into the pretty and very-well protected harbor of Shelburne for a short visit. This pretty gaff schooner was sailing in the harbor as we entered.

I've only been to Shelburne once before, in my old schooner Orbit II. I had singlehanded from Provincetown (Cape Cod) and ran into Shelburne just ahead of a gale. Shelburne has a long harbor, offering excellent protection from storms. I had just gotten the anchor down and the sails all tied and gone below when the gale arrived. I was exhausted from the lack of sleep (it was my first singlehanded sail), and extremely glad to be down below where it was dry as the wind howled and the rain and hail pounded on the cabintop. So I have pleasant memories of Shelburne.
