this was the view I saw as she made her way round the harbor parading her beautiful sails for one and all to see... Picton Castle The 284-ton Barque Picton Castle is a traditionally rigged and operated sail training ship based in Lunenburg, Nova Scotia, Canada, but best known for her voyages around the world. Since 1997, the ship has made five global circumnavigations, as well as two trips to the Great Lakes and other jaunts up and down the coasts of the US and Canada. Along the way she has introduced more than a thousand people to the challenges and rewards of square-rigged sailing, earning awards from Tall Ships America and Sail Training International. This fall, the Picton Castle will cast off on a brand-new adventure, exploring the islands of the South Pacific. Trainees may sign aboard for the entire 8-month voyage or segments of four months. As a training ship all on board work, stand watch, and learn the ways of a square-rigged sailing ship. Workshops are conducted in wire and rope rigging, sail making, boat handling, navigation, and practical seamanship. The ship also delivers much-needed educational materials and other supplies to the remote islands she visits. The Picton Castle is outfitted to the highest standard with safety gear and equipment. She is a strong, seaworthy home afloat for young adventurers devoted to learning the art of deep-water seafaring.
