Bold Venture (Hull 12)


Sure hope this is Bold Venture. I believe Roy Mac Keen identified it for us some time ago.
It was one of the first off the line and created as a training vessel for Cabot staff, and chartered out of Bedeck Marina.

Eventually sailed from Baddeck to the Caribbean. This email from Roy Mac Keen "Bold Venture" was hull # 12, ie the second boat built by Cabot craftand named by me for the bold venture of borrowing $25,000 and startingthe Bras d'Or charter Association."

Roy was, of course, the man at the helm of CCI in the latter half of its production in the 1970's.

This is indeed Windrose, at The Royal Nova Scotia Yacht Squadron, in Halifax. She is still owned by the Coady family.
