theartfuldodger. that is a great story you shared with us! in 1984 on the sheila yeates ( 50ft on deck topsail ketch) coming from the parade of sail in halifax through the straights of canso heading west. wind was NW at 40 and building.we turned around and went back through the locks with some difficulty. there was a square rigger in the harbor dragging anchor with engines full ahead. we passed a canadian CG coming to help them. as we went east to get behind a hill on the north side to anchor. the wind tore tin roofs off buildings in the area
