Stay & Sail on the Bras d’Or Lake
Combine an overnight stay and a fine evening meal at the Bras d’Or Lakes Inn with a captained day sailing adventure aboard Cape Breton Sailing Charter’s 26-foot ‘Misty Cat, a Nonsuch-class cruising sailboat. You can take the helm and handle Misty Cat’s unique wishbone sail rig. All guests are invited to try their hand steering, sail trimming, anchoring and navigating with helpful advice from the skipper. Captain Greg brings five decades of sailing experience, including teaching, racing and cruising on inland, coastal and offshore waters. He enjoys sharing this and his wealth of local knowledge about the natural and social histories of the inland sea. Bras d’Or Lake and its watershed was recently designated a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve and sets a perfect stage for your day sailing adventure.
Your cruise departs from Misty Cat’s private dock adjacent the historic St. Peter’s Canal. You will transit the protected waters of St. Peter’s Inlet northerly, through an island-studded passage sculpted with quiet coves, to Chapel Island and Cape George, opening into the great inland sea known as Bras d’Or Lake. On full day charters, you can anchor for a swim and tasty lunch. Every charter offers a hands-on sailing experience and route options, based on guests’ interests, weather and wind conditions.
