“On the Ropes” – Tall Ships at Bath, Ontario
“What’s in a life without Camaraderie? For setting sail on a ship with a band of merry brothers by your side is much more gratifying than drifting aimlessly on a boat lost alone at sea.”
― Saim .A. Cheeda
This is not my typical photograph, but I could not help but be amazed by the young crew members of the Black Jack as they stood high above the deck and tied down the sails for the day.
The ship had already come to port and the deck was bustling with activity, each crew member performing their duty as part of a well trained team. Most of the crew members are quite young and participating in sailing camp and team building work. With the young women in the rigging, being guided by what I assume is a senior crew member, I thought the image of the team working together with the Canadian flag so prominent, was a great testimony to what has made our 150 year old nation so wonderful. It’s a lot of people, from different backgrounds, working together to a common goal.

I like it! It makes me feel dizzy though.
Quite a height!
I gather you only post at your website now?
Yes, on my blog and my web site, as well as Facebook.
Sorry, I misread the date, hence the question.
I usually only stop by here, on the blog, but I had a look at the website as well. Nice.
Thank you, I have some catch up to do on my web site. Thanks for stopping by 🙂
Stunning.. Happy belated Canada Day!
Totally off topic:
The crew must be volunteers.
If I had my guys do this, OSHA (federal occupational safety agency) would have me in leg irons.
These are kids who pay for the experience. Ingesting though, no harnesses or anything. Like the good old days 😉
