Tall Ship Empire Sandy to Visit Clayton

Clayton, NY (January 23, 2013) –Sailing Seaway Clayton presented by Caskinette’s Lofink Ford announced today that Canadian tall ship Empire Sandy has been added to the 2013 festivities.
Tall ship Empire Sandy is expected to help kick off the 2013 edition of the festival on Wednesday, June 12.
Empire Sandy, based out of Toronto, was built in the early 1940s for war service by the British government. It would go on to serve in World War II in the north Atlantic Ocean. The ship is now operated by Nautical Adventures and serves as a cruise ship on Lake Ontario, carrying more than 200 passengers.
The ship is more than 200-feet in length and is a three-mast schooner with a height of 116-feet.
Empire Sandy will join tall ship Lynx (122-feet long, 94-feet tall) in Clayton on June 12 and June 13 before departing for Brockville, Ontario. A complete tour schedule will be announced at a later date.

Folsom named to Lynx Board of Directors
Michael Folsom, 33, organizer of Sailing Seaway Clayton, was recently named to the position of Board member for the Lynx Educational Foundation, operators of tall ship Lynx.

Folsom was responsible for bringing Lynx to the Thousand Islands in June and September of 2011, creating strong interest in tall ships throughout the region. While Lynx was in Clayton, more than 500 people sailed aboard the ship during 2-hour sailing excursions, while several thousand climbed aboard for deck tours.

“It’s an honor to be recognized by the folks from Lynx, including Executive Director Jeffrey Woods,” said Folsom. “I look forward to working with those on the Board to ensure the longevity of the ship and continue to grow interest, not only in Lynx, but all tall ships.”

Folsom will act as a public relations liaison for the Foundation and assist the staff and crew with promotional aspects.

Tall ship Lynx recently named Fort Myers Beach, Florida as it’s winter homeport. In 2011, the Clayton community gave a proclamation naming Lynx as Clayton’s “adopted tall ship.”

I'm pretty sure this is what would make shipping fun for me. Being able to destroy the ship after I was finished with it. I wonder if they have any spares in Ontario that they wouldn't mind if the ships got destroyed.

When you're a carpenter making a beautiful chest of drawers, you're not going to use a piece of plywood on the back, even though it faces the wall and nobody will ever see it. You'll know it's there, so you're going to use a beautiful piece of wood on the back.
