****UPDATE**** Due to weather, Picton Castle’s departure has been delayed until Monday at 2:00pm.
Picton Castle has been abuzz with activity for the past three weeks with orientation, training and preparation for the South Pacific Voyage. New trainee crew members joined us October 1st and have been getting to know each other, working together, learning the ways of the ship and starting to build a solid foundation of seamanship skills.
We’ll tell you more about the activities of the past three weeks in the coming days, but for now we want to let you know that Picton Castle is scheduled to set sail from Lunenburg this Sunday, October 21st, at 2:00pm, bound for the island of Carriacou in the country of Grenada in the West Indies. All are welcome at our wharf at 174 Bluenose Drive, Lunenburg, Nova Scotia, Canada on Sunday to wave and wish the crew fair winds for this voyage to the South Pacific.
Departure, as always, is subject to the weather. Any updates will be posted here, so please check in before you head for the waterfront on Sunday. For the most up to date news and photos, including almost daily posts on how the crew have been keeping busy for the past few weeks, please like us on Facebook or follow us on Twitter.
