One of the best things about sailing with an international crew, and having an international group of students at the Bosun School, is celebrating different national holidays. This past weekend was Thanksgiving in Canada and the Bosun School students marked the occasion with a sit-down turkey dinner.
We have so much to be thankful for here. We’ve had beautiful fall weather that has allowed us to get a lot of work and study done, a gorgeous and safe harbour here in Lunenburg, food to eat and a roof over our heads. What we’re most thankful for is the people who make up our community; the students at the Bosun School, our professional crew and trainees past and present, friends and supporters of Picton Castle, and especially this year, the thousands of visitors who came to see our ship in the many ports we called at as part of the Rendez-vous 2017 Tall Ships Regatta.
