  • Ghost Ship of Northumberland Strait is described as a beautiful schooner that has three masts (sometimes four masts, as reports vary) with pure white sails, all of which become completely engulfed in flames as onlookers watch.[6] There never seems to be a predetermined place for where the ship will appear; sightings tend to happen when least expected.[6] Sightings have occurred throughout the seasons, but seem to be more prevalent from September to November.[7] These visions are also apparent before a northeast wind, and folklore has it that this brilliant ghost ship is a forewarning of a storm.[7]
