OGDENSBURG -- The schooner Lois McClure will not arrive in Ogdensburg until Friday, after strong headwinds and current delayed its travel.
The schooner was set to arrive Thursday during her tour commemorating the War of 1812 bicentennial.
It will remain in Ogdensburg through the weekend.
Her tour theme this year is “1813: The Shipwrights’ War, and Other Stories.”
“The shipbuilding races and naval battles of 1813 helped to determine the outcome of the War of 1812, and left a legacy of shipwrecks beneath the waters of the Great Lakes, St. Lawrence River, and Lake Champlain,” said Art Cohn, special project director of the Lake Champlain Maritime Museum.
The Lois McClure will be open from approximately 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Saturday for free tours.
The Lois McClure was built by museum shipwrights and volunteers on the Burlington waterfront, based on two shipwrecks of 1862-class canal schooners discovered in Lake Champlain.
