Royal Canadian Navy

There was a show last night while we were having dinner......The Royal Canadian Navy's training ship, Orca, pulled up across the breakwater from us.  They were still here this morning, so I took a couple of photos, and Al got busy doing research.

This boat IS the Orca, first of 8 ships in the Orca class.  Here is the Wikipedia link, if you care to look at more information:

This morning's view to port

At 33 meters (108+ feet), the Orca makes Viking Star look quite small across the breakwater

This is what flags look like in 50-knot winds (57.539 mph)
