The Empire Sandy
At 200 feet overall and 11,000 square feet of sail, the "Empire Sandy" was the easy choice to have our wedding and reception.  The wedding will take place on the dock, after which we sail right away around the Toronto Harbour and Lake Ontario - luckily the water is usually as calm as this, so no worries about getting seasick!
