A Nova Scotia native, Logan circumnavigated on the Picton Castle‘s fourth world voyage in the role of deckhand and ship’s carpenter, and has spent a few summers and winters on board as well. Logan’s skills extend far beyond carpentry—he has assisted in the engine room, served as a junior watch officer, and is always one of the first and fastest to climb aloft. He literally runs up the rigging leaving everyone below him looking quite silly as they fumble to keep up on the bouncing shrouds. Logan is a patient teacher aboard and is fond of creating his own greatest adventures in every port of call. Logan is an excellent story teller and his shipmates hang on his every word.
Finn, Assistant Engineer/Deckhand
Raised in Dartmouth, NS, and joining us in February from British Columbia, Finn sailed on the Picton Castle‘s second world voyage, and has re-joined the ship to earn sea time to apply towards a Mate’s license. Finn is a tremendous resource as a shipmate; having served for a time as Picton Castle‘s Bosun, Finn is quite accomplished on deck and in the rig and now he returns to us after having served in the engine rooms of two other vessels. Under Chief Engineer Andrea’s guidance, Finn’s ability to learn and adapt quickly has made him an essential assistant in the engineering department. His true passion, however, is working on deck and in the rigging. Finn got his start at the Nova Scotia Sea School in Halifax.
