While the crew are having a fantastic stay in Cape Town, South Africa we have some exciting news from our home office in Lunenburg as well. We’ve been keeping the news under wraps for a while, but now we can share with you that Picton Castle will be participating in the Canada Games opening ceremony. We can’t really share any details yet, but a group of crew alumni who are based in Nova Scotia will be taking part in the ceremony on Friday night in Halifax. Held every two years, alternating between summer and winter, the Canada Games is the country’s largest multi-sport competition for young people from every province and territory (over 1800 young athletes will be participating in 15 sports!). The opening ceremony will be broadcast across Canada on TSN2 and online at http://canadagames.bellaliant.net/. We hope you’ll tune in and keep an eye open for some familiar faces!
