I have shifted from downtown Halifax to the Royal Nova Scotia Yacht Squadron - one of 7 "Royal Yacht Squadrons" in the world, and the third oldest. To be a "Royal Yacht Squadron" requires a sponsor of British royalty. The oldest is the one in the UK, at Cowles. The original sponsor (who was also a member at Cowles) was George IV while he was Prince Regent. When George III died (the King at the time of the American Revolution) the club name was changed to "Royal" as the King was a member.
This is a very pretty club on the Northwest arm of Halifax harbor. I will stay here tonight and tomorrow until the weather clears and then head on to St. John's Newfoundland.
