27′ Lapstrake double ender row and sail.

Commissioned by the Canadian Naval Memorial Trust, a charitable, non-profit organization committed to preserving HMCS Sackville in perpetuity for the benefit of all Canadians.

HMCS Sackville is Canada’s oldest warship. This Naval Memorial and National Historic Site was a combat veteran of the Second World War. She is the last of Canada’s 123 corvettes, one of many convoy escort vessels built in Canada and the United Kingdom during the war. She played a pivotal role in winning the Battle of the Atlantic and holds a special place in Canadian naval history and heritage.
