Movie legend bonds with province
CHARLOTTETOWN †ó† The yacht Aerie has shaken, not stirred, curiosity on P.E.I. The big white boat has been tied up at the Charlottetown Yacht Club for the last few days as its famous owner enjoys a quiet Island vacation.
“Well I guess you’re referring to the big white one out there,” said Vice Commodore Wellington Gay when asked about the boat. “That one belongs to Sean Connery formerly known, or better known perhaps, as James Bond.”
Agent 007 has been making his way around the Island. And like any good secret agent he’s been doing it quietly. Sightings of Connery, 73, are few and far between.
Staff at the yacht club have seem him, but are affording the James Bond star some privacy.
“I saw one gentleman with a beard, but it wasn’t him,” said tourist Pat Lynch.
The Aerie ñ which means eagle’s nest ó won’t be moored in the harbour much longer.
The yacht club said it has the facilities to handle the larger yachts, and is always ready welcome the rich and famous people that sail them.
