On the Waterfront - Empire Sandy 200 ft Long (1943)

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

"The classic tall ship Empire Sandy". Built in England in 1943, the 200 feet long ship cruises Toronto Harbour and Lake Ontario, offering passengers the unique experience of sailing aboard an authentic Tall Ship, while enjoying a dinner cruise or other event. The 740 ton Empire Sandy carries up to 275 passengers. My old company rented this ship on two occasion for a night of dancing and dining along Toronto's scenic waterfront.

Tomas, I was looking to see if anyone had stats in P-- for 9/18 when I came across this gem (Favorite26) in your most popular thumbs, which reminded me that I need to comment on . . .

Tomros on September 22, 2012

I am in this area quite often, but do not catch the big boats with sails very often.

mg1744 on September 24, 2012

That was my experience also with the parades of sail; the larger ships, especially the square-riggers, almost always use their engines most unfortunately from our point of view.
