Book your cruise
Now is the time to book your sailing trip aboard one of Drummond Island Tall Ship Company's sailboat. Don't delay as there's only a limited number of sailing days in the calendar.
Launched on Easter 2012, it only seemed appropriate to give a sailboat new that spring the name of the Spring goddess - Ishtar. Quite often she is the first of our sailboats launched each year.
