Cape Breton Compass Waves Tote Bag
Cape Breton Island has a rich history of seafaring, dating back to the early nineteenth century when the island was primarily used as a base for French fishermen. In the mid-eighteenth century, the island was captured by the British, who established a naval base at Sydney and used the island as a strategic location during the American Revolution and the War of 1812. During the nineteenth century, Cape Breton Island became an important center for shipbuilding, with many vessels being constructed in the island's numerous harbors. Today, seafaring remains an important part of the island's economy, with fishing and tourism being major industries
Compasses have been an essential tool for seafarers for centuries, providing a reliable means of navigation on the open sea. The most common type of compass used in seafaring is the magnetic compass, which uses the Earth's magnetic field to indicate direction. The compass consists of a magnetized needle that is suspended on a pivot, allowing it to rotate freely. The needle aligns itself with the Earth's magnetic field, pointing towards magnetic north.
