Port-La Nouvelle: great success for the Saint-Pierre festival

On Sunday, July 7, Port-La Nouvelle celebrated the feast of Saint-Pierre with an event marking the sea weekend. Local associations linked to the maritime world came together to offer residents and vacationers a variety of entertainment and activities.

Despite the unpredictable weather, the passion and enthusiasm of the exhibitors brightened up the day. Rowing enthusiasts were able to learn and watch demonstrations at the nautical center, thanks to Aviron Nouvellois. At the same time, a sea forum was held, highlighting associations such as the Sea Men’s Club, the SNSM and the ANJS. These stands allowed visitors to discover the different facets of maritime life and meet professionals dedicated to the protection and promotion of the sea.

The seafront promenade was animated by the Nautical Circle and the Seafarers’ Women, who shared their knowledge and love for maritime traditions. An opportunity to recall that all sales made by the Seafarers’ Women help to help seafarers’ wives in need.

The ARAN (Association of New Brunswick Amateur Radio Operators) activated the PB 235 beacon on the half-moon at the entrance to the beach car park, providing an exciting demonstration of their activities.

Finally, for the more adventurous, Nouvelle Vague offered introductory diving sessions along the pier, on the beach side. This initiation allowed many participants to immerse themselves in the underwater world and discover the beauty of the region’s seabed.

This morning was a real success, combining discovery, learning and conviviality, and helped to strengthen the links between the associations and the public. Port-La Nouvelle was able, once again, to highlight its rich maritime heritage and provide all participants with an unforgettable experience.
