This photo shows the SJSA “fleet”, taken in 1991. It includes some SJCBS canoes as well. I know that many of these boats endeared themselves to the students and staff though the years, so much so that they garnered some interesting nicknames. Do you remember any of these? What was your “favourite” nickname for a canoe(s)? Send us your story.
Also of note an alumnus from the Manitoba school, Richard de Candole, has put together a You Tube video of the canoes from all three schools with the names and stories of who their namesakes were. It is well worth a watch.
