Twelve-year-old Will’s life changed forever when his father died. Now, with his mother moving on, he sneaks out one night and takes a bus to Lunenburg, Nova Scotia, his father’s hometown.

But reuniting with his dad’s family also leads to an encounter with the spirit of his great-grandfather, Bill “The Real” McCoy, a notorious rumrunner who has been dead for more than seventy-five years.

William takes to the seas in a high-stakes schooner race with more than a trophy at stake; his family, his father’s memory and the legacy of The Real McCoy are on the line.
