Sail on strait in­cludes four-course meal, en­ter­tain­ment

The News (New Glasgow) - - PICTOU COUNTY -

An evening sail com­bined with food and en­ter­tain­ment is slated for the Northum­ber­land Strait this month.

Tick­ets are sell­ing well for a cruise and four-course meal aboard the MV Con­fed­er­a­tion on Sept. 23 from Caribou, says Cindy MacKin­non, man­ager of Des­ti­na­tion Northum­ber­land and East­ern Shores.

“I have had calls from peo­ple from out of prov­ince,” she said. “We have a cou­ple com­ing from the United States that saw the event on so­cial me­dia and thought it would be cool to at­tend. We had peo­ple from On­tario and peo­ple buy tick­ets for fam­ily mem­bers. It is a nice event and the weather looks good.”

Pas­sen­gers will board the MV Con­fed­er­a­tion by foot at 530 p.m. sharp and set sail to­wards Pic­tou Har­bour while tast­ing lo­cal food and drink with the Kilted Chef, Alain Bossé.

Upon the ship’s re­turn to port, guests will be treated to a four­course meal and en­ter­tain­ment from Gordie MacKee­man and the Rhythm Boys.

The sail and din­ner are spon­sored by Sco­tia­bank and Ger­ald Bat­tist Truck­ing.

“We are al­ways com­plain­ing in Pic­tou County that we don’t do things that are out­side the box,” said Bossé. “This is out­side the box. We need peo­ple to sup­port this.”

All of the food be­ing served will come from Nova Sco­tia in­clud­ing the al­co­holic drinks from Un­cle Leo’s, Nova Sco­tia Spir­its and Jost Wines.
