This looks like a Canadian sail training vessel. Maybe True North I hope its running under engine otherwise its making quite a bit of headway for just one foresail! Were you kayaking at the time Kevin ?
This is (perhaps) a life history if I have guessed the vessel correctly. Is the picture 5 or more years old Kevin?
My goodness, Jethrohoyt, Good catch!! You've outdone yourself with the link to True North and the boat's history ... a very interesting read!
This was taken June, 2004 while on a ferry trip (not kayaking) from Southport to Fort Fisher, and she was definitely under engine power - it passed our ferry in a flash!
So I looked back in those photos and am very happy to report your suspicion was correct! I found a photo showing STV Unicorn as clear as day on the hull! Posted here … http://www.panoramio.com/photo/30799608
