Day’s Run – February 22, 2018

Picton Castle hove up anchor from Rose Bay this morning just before sunrise. Having left our berth in Lunenburg yesterday afternoon with all systems go, we are on our way to Bermuda. The crew spent the last few days bending on more sail to speed our passage along and enjoyed some unseasonably warm temperatures. It’s cold out now but all onboard are looking forward to the Gulf Stream and the warm water it brings with it. For now there is a fair wind stretching the topsails, the B&W Alpha main engine is rhythmically thumping away and we are leaving the coast behind. Farewell to Nova Scotia!
