Pictures from the 1960s
Submitted by: Michael Lowthian (1960-1965)
Last 3 pictures: Pictures are from July 1961 at summer camp in HMCS Acadia; sailing in Sidney NS harbour in wooden whaler-–9 man crews. Last photograph shows Cadet Mike Lowthian from Winnipeg. Note: First photo, of the three, was a passing whaler with cadets from Quebec. When passing someone offered them a comment "you are dragging your anchor". Not understanding the comment they raised their centre board and almost immediately capsized. No casualties but all had to go to hospital for a tetanus shot because Sidney harbour was so polluted.
