The Ship's Company of Penetanguishene is going to commerate the 200th Anniversary of the War of 1812 by building and sailing the HMS Lynx.
Work has continued on the HMS Lynch during the winter. The interior of the vessel is almost complete, including an innovative steering system running from a ship’s wheel to the outside of the stern.
They are planning to launch the HMS Lynx on Sunday June 10 at the Penetanguishene Town Dock. The vessel will then be very active this summer, participating in a range of War of 1812 Bicentennial and community events.
They are based out of Penetanguishene, Ontario on Southern Georgian Bay, in association with the Penetanguishene Centennial Museum.
