Autumn – 2022
Successful Ships and Sails Event
On August 13th and 14th approximately 825 visitors enjoyed a family heritage event to celebrate the naval history of Nancy Island Historic Site.
Activities included Voyageur canoe rides courtesy of Free Spirit Tours, model ship building (kits provided by the Wasaga Woodworkers), witnessing naval and voyageur re-enactors firing cannons, and sailing on the ship HMS Lynx. Many children participated in heritage games that included a challenging Powder Monkey run!
When you are out and about in Wasaga, please be sure to thank our event sponsors which included those who provided donations to fund the event, and food to keep our team of volunteers, re-enactors and staff fed throughout the weekend. Our sponsors were: Town of Wasaga Beach, Home Hardware, ReMax By the Bay, Grandma’s Beach Treats, Twisted Indian, Pita Pit, Boston Pizza, Dairy Queen, and Catch 22.
All in all, a successful weekend! We look forward to doing it again next year and hope to see you then.
