Sail on strait includes four-course meal, entertainment
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.
