Third Annual Wooden Boat Reunion Starts In Lunenburg

History and Heritage will be on display this weekend in Lunenburg as the third annual Wooden Boat Reunion gets underway. The weekend highlights include the Nova Scotia Schooner Association's Heritage Cup race for schooners and other wooden vessels. There's also dory rowing, and a putt-putt race between wood boats with single engines. Event chairperson, Maggie Ostler, says people can also visit the country's oldest saltbank schooner.

Ostler encourages anyone with a wooden boat to get involved in the festivities. A schedule of events can be found here .
