Day’s Run – 31 October, 2018

The last day of October and we’re sailing northwesterly into November. This morning, half sleepy-eyed and messy-haired, shipmates gathered on the aloha deck, sipping their morning coffee as the sun shone brightly on their backs. The port side fishing line became taut and Abbey, of North Carolina, jumped up with excitement and began hauling in the line. Fish on! And it’s not even 0730. She hauled the fish in and Braham, of Texas, gaffed the wahoo and together they lifted the fish onto deck. All before breakfast was served!

Being nearly a week out at sea, we’re plowing through our to do lists. Rigger Abbey works on end for ending the monomoy’s boat falls. The boat falls are the two tackles that are hooked to the boat, one at the bow, one at the stern to haul it up into the davits.  End for ending the lines essentially means switching the ends of the lines, as one end is attached to a shackle that then immediately follows through a three-part block, attaches to the davit and runs down to deck. Abbey is switching the end that is attached to the shackle with the bitter end that is hauled on to hoist the boat. By doing so, this distributes the wear and tear of the line.

Dustin, of Nova Scotia, works on the foc’sle head, replacing the fish tackle’s chafe gear that has completely worn away where it rests on the forward pin rail. The sailmakers, John and Kirsten, along with helpers, Kimba, John-Boy and Annie, stitch away at the new spanker cloths and sew grommets into the new main topmast staysail. Whilst members of the on-duty watch paint the bottle screws on the mainmast rigging, Colin scrapes the old varnish off of the starboard forward pin rail that secures the sheets for the head rig.

On today’s notice board it has been announced that next week, weather permitting, we will have a farewell to the South Pacific celebration! The South Pacific is held dear to the hearts of Picton Castle crew. After sailing this ocean, experiencing the islands first hand and meeting the beautiful people, Picton Castle itself begins to make more sense. Our ship has many ancestors that embody her, and the South Pacific is a big part of what makes the ship what she is. We will miss the pleasant crystal blue seas, the food; breadfruit and fresh coconuts, her gentle winds and the people who’ve we’ve been so immensely lucky to have met. Thank you South Pacific, let’s enjoy the last few days together.

Day’s Run – 30 October, 2018

Whilst our North American loved ones are getting ready for Halloween and fall activities back home, we here on the Picton Castle are enjoying the weather that we’ve been so blessed with. The sun is powerfully hot, yet not the hottest we’ve endured on this voyage, luckily the wind is constant, and if you’re lucky enough to get a job in the shade it’s quite pleasant to work in. The winds have picked up but the seas are small, there’s a light sway of movement on board, making it easier for the various departments to get their tasks completed. The evenings cool off to a pleasant and comfortable sleeping temperature. Fingers crossed this weather will hold out. The Captain says it can get very hot in the Tores Strait.

Busy busy morning on deck; it sounds as though we’re in a shipyard or workshop. Lots of noise! The engineers have left their sunless engine room and are working on welding projects on the well deck. Rune, of Norway, is angle grinding the main mast bottle screws on the port side shrouds. The carpenter team are ripping up old caulking on the quarterdeck planks to be replaced. Abbey, of North Carolina, has been aloft all morning, working on patching servings. James, of Rhode Island, is repairing a block on the port fore brace.

It’s been a sailmaking frenzy this morning, having five crew members stitching away with yards and yards of canvas flowing out over their laps, the ship’s deck blanketed with white canvas, resembling a sailmaker’s loft. John, of Massachusetts, and Kimba, of Ontario, stitched away at the tabling on a new main topmast stays’l. Annie of Ontario, Kristen of Alberta, and Erin of Bermuda, seamed together cloths of canvas for the new spanker.

It’s amazing to witness the inner workings of the ship after we’ve been underway for 6 months now! The crew know the routine, understand what is expected of them and realize that every day we’re learning new skills or getting plenty of practice and every day there is new stuff to think about.

Day’s Run – 29 October, 2018

Yesterday’s Halloween festivities went off without a hitch! After lunch the crew worked together and transformed below decks into a haunted house. Cobwebs, spiders, ghosts, goblins and ghouls took over our ship. Dawson, age 6, dressed as a Super Gekko and bravely charged through the scary obstacles in order to collect as much candy as possible. And that he did, filling his pumpkin bucket to the brim, not once but twice! After which he kindly shared his loot with the crew. A lovely Sunday at Sea, everyone dressed up, transforming themselves into someone or something else. Pretending you’re someone or something else for the day is what Halloween is all about! Music blasted from the bridge, as crew members danced and ate popcorn and candy, all the while we sailed atop the South Pacific.

Monday morning now and the crew is back at it. This week the daymen departments each have a new apprentice learning the ropes. Kirsten, of Alberta, is practicing her stitches and learning the skills to become a sailmaker. Arne, of Minnesota, is busy repairing planks and caulking on the quarterdeck with the carpenters. And Tyler, of Ontario, is down below learning his way around the engine room. We as the crew are very fortunate that we’re able and given the opportunities to get our hands into various departments on the ship. This is not only beneficial to the crew member, but also to the ship, the more individuals know how to do different things the better off we are as a team. These week-long apprenticeships often boost a crew member’s confidence and allows them an insight into a world that was once foreign to them.

Lots of tinkering of tools, rust busting, stitching of sails and playing Lego ongoing this morning. The gaff topsail is being bent on the mizzen mast, while the mate runs through the plan with the riggers to bend on the stuns’ls. All are looking forward to a great week ahead.

Day’s Run – 28 October, 2018

Sunday at Sea and a beautiful one at that! The sun shines hot almost directly overhead as we gently sway side to side in the Pacific Ocean. Yesterday afternoon was rather exciting in the fishing department. Colin, of Nova Scotia, our avid fisherman sets four lines every morning in the hopes of catching a fresh fish. Yesterday his fishing reel buzzed out just as a second line came taut with a mahi-mahi – “fish on!” was called throughout the ship. Two fish on would have been the correct announcement.

Our cook Donald, of Grenada, arrived at the aloha deck. He is our fish whisperer, he knows how to reel in the fish without losing it, when to stop and hold the fish and how to properly use the gaff. A gaff is a large sharp hook attached to a bamboo pole that Donald uses to spear the fish in order to bring it up on deck, as the stern of the ship (the aloha deck where we fish) is quite high off the waterline. We require the use of the gaff to haul the fish on to the deck as pulling on the line to bring the fish up would be near impossible.

What’s different about fishing while underway on a square rigger rather than in a fishing vessel is that the fishermen here are not only fighting the fish but they’re also fighting the ship as it sails along. As we hauled in the Mahi-mahi,  Colin was fighting to keep a rather large fish on his fishing line. After 40 minutes of him keeping the strain, Rune of Norway, came to relieve him. Shortly after, the Captain decided enough was enough and the call came to “rise tacks and sheets on the main” and to brace around the main yards. Once we hove to, Colin, Rune and Donald were able to haul up a 95 lb tuna! We couldn’t believe it. Today for lunch, Liz, Katie and Tyler made a delicious batch of ceviche from the fresh tuna.

This morning a few crew members diddled away at their personal projects while others enjoyed the lovely weather and read on deck. The Halloween festivities are starting to begin! Six-year-old ship’s boy Dawson and friends will be trick or treating throughout the ship… if they can make through the haunted house!

Day’s Run – 27 October, 2018

A gorgeous Saturday at sea aboard the Picton Castle. We couldn’t ask for better weather, the hot sun shines politely down on deck as a cool constant breeze runs over our suntanned skin. This morning a team of sailmaking helpers, including Sue, Braham, and Erin, assisted the ship’s sailmaker John by seaming together a new spanker and worked on mending an old one.

In the rigging department, Abbey was busy aloft greasing stays and lift cables. Annie and Brittni worked on oiling the blocks on the foremast and mainmast. The majority of our blocks on the ship are wooden. They spend days and days in the hot South Pacific sun which causes the wood to dry out, like a person becoming dehydrated. In order to hydrate them, we apply a thin coat of linseed oil.  It’s like a sunblock too. This requires the crew member to harness up, climb up and down the rigging, clip in, all the while having a paint can filled a quarter of the way with oil attached to them. It’s well worth the effort, and being up mast, high off the deck, with more wind in your hair, is an amazing break from down below and also a moment of solitude; just you and your bucket & brush.

In other exciting news, our single sideband radio was able to pick up a New Zealand radio station! Do not get me wrong: being away from land, shore life and all it embodies is beyond refreshing; but hearing a new song is wonderful. As well, tomorrow we’re celebrating Halloween! This afternoon the Secret Scare Committee will hold a meeting in order to hash out the festivities. It’s going to be spooktacular! Ship’s boy Dawson is particularly excited.

Day’s Run – 26 October, 2018

All sails are set, our course is west, as Peter Pan says “second star to the right and straight on ’til morning”, leaving Vanuatu in our wake. It would be impossible for me to capture all that we experienced and soaked up from our amazing stay island hopping through Vanuatu.

During World War II the main island, Espiritu Santo, was a massive army base that housed millions of American troops who were deployed to the island in order to prevent the Japanese from invading. During this time the country was owned by both the English and the French. When the Americans were called out of Vanuatu at the end of the war there were tons of military machinery, vehicles, planes, boats and ships left behind. Rather than handing the machinery over to the local people (the English and French strongly disagreed upon this idea) the Americans simply pushed millions of dollars worth of military property into the ocean. Or so the story is told. It may be apocryphal. The beach where this war material was strewn was named Million Dollar Point after the war. If it was today maybe it would be Billion Dollar Point. You can go there to snorkel or scuba dive and explore some amazing pieces of history.

We first arrived at the island of Espiritu Santo in Vanuatu on October 10 at midday, anchored off the shore of the town of Luganville, and once we cleared in the crew had a few hours to stretch their legs ashore, stock up on snacks, goods, and local currency. The following morning we heaved up the anchor and motored to the island of Malekula, to the village of Banam Bay.

Our time here was amazing. From the moment our crew hopped out of the skiff and onto the beach we felt welcomed. We were fortunate enough to have groups of playful, energetic children take us by the hand and lead us to the village.

As we get deeper and deeper into our grand adventure of circumnavigating the globe, we have learned and come to understand the protocols and customs of entering into small communities for a brief period of time. Every island is exceptionally different from the previous, yet there are many similarities.

Here at Banam Bay, our crew were able to lend a hand within the community; fixing broken cooking pots and welding grills, donating school books and supplies, as well as setting up a medical clinic. Our ship’s doctor, Tomas, of Argentina, and Ted, of North Carolina, a trained nurse, and Stephanie, of British Columbia: together these three fantastic individuals held a two-day clinic in which they reviewed a hundred patients.

After three amazing days of playing on the beach with the children, being entertained with “Kastum” (traditional) dances, eating delicious food and simply having fun we had to say farewell to our Banam Bay family.

Onwards to the island of Maewo, to the village of Asanvari. We arrived early in the morning, dropping our anchor in a gorgeous bay, much like you would see in a Hollywood movie. Rolling lush hills, a white sandy beach with giant trees shading it and a picture-perfect waterfall. Once the ship was secured a swim call was our first order of business!

Once the crew got ashore most headed straight to the waterfall for a refreshing dip and discovered that a large tree had fallen, covering up the swimming hole. The following day 12 or so crew members headed to the site with axes, machetes, hatchets and rope in order to remove the tree, after first asking permission from the village and chief to do so. It took a day and a half of hard, yet fun and rewarding work and the Picton Castle crew had successfully cleaned up the waterfall site, restoring it to its old self.

After three amazing days in Asanvari, we heaved up the anchor and set sails as the sun was rising on the horizon. Back in Luganville, we were able to provision the ship and take on 13 tons of fuel for our 25 – 30 day passage to Bali! And the crew was able to enjoy the conveniences of modern luxury, sightsee and catch up on their correspondence. Visits to blue hole freshwater lakes and WWII heritage tours finding downed bombers in the jungle. The Chinese stores and hardware stores are unbelievable. Lots of ship’s work was able to be completed, during this time we oiled the main deck and cleaned and spot painted the topsides.

Now that we are underway for a long passage, the crew is settling back into their ship life and routine. No more shore distractions. It’s refreshing to be back at sea, focusing on the ship as well as your personal projects, it’s always good to have an ongoing personal task to keep yourself busy. Today has been a busy day, six-year-old ship’s boy Dawson spent the morning building a Lego castle, our rigger Abbey, of North Carolina, took the twist out of the port main brace line, the scullery porthole is receiving a coat of primer and the talk of the town is a new faucet in the inside head! Very exciting.

Captain’s Log – Banam Bay

The Picton Castle sailed into Luganville, Santo, Vanuatu after a decent six-day passage under sail from Fiji. A beautiful approach between all the islands on a sunny morning as we sailed past “Million Dollar Point” the wreck of the SS Coolidge, the WWII transport ship that hit a mine at the entrance and was rammed on the beach to save lives, which worked. And down this big sound once filled with all manner of navy ships at anchor during the war years. And the setting for “Tales of the South Pacific” by James Michner. And finally at anchor under sail off the town.

I was hoping for a quick clearing in so we could head out for Banam Bay that night, but this was thwarted by events. No worries, we spent the night at Luganville and set off in the morning.

By later in the afternoon we were making approaches to Banam Bay. There is not much of a chart for this bay, but between coordinates and bearings from previous visits marked in our logs, as well as good local knowledge from these visits, we got in around the reef and anchored in 50 feet of water in hard sand. A good anchorage is Banam Bay, one of the few in these parts.

A lone outrigger came out to greet us. Afung Saitol was our visitor. His father was the famous Chief Saitol who was so wonderful to us over the years. His grandson Dixon has taken over many of Saitol’s duties as ‘cultural coordinator’ and I mentioned to Afung that I would come in next morning to say hello to he and his wife Yvonne and their baby girl Tammy. Yes, this little cherub is named after my wife. She is 4 years old. We had a quiet night at anchor with nary a light ashore.

The morning dawned balmy and clear. We could see the smoke from cook-fires drifting above the trees. The odd dog barking and a few roosters crowing without much enthusiasm over the still bay. The gang was excited to get ashore but first we had to pay our respects. The chief mate, our doctor, and a few others went ashore with me after breakfast to say hello and see what folks were in the mood for with our visit. The folks of Banam Bay are enormously friendly, gentle and hospitable but we do not want to presume that they have time or interest in entertaining us just because we showed up in a big sailing ship. Discussions and hopefully invitations would ensue. They did.

But first we take the skiff into the landing on the smooth calm beach (and a perfect chance to learn and practice beach landings in the skiff), we find some children who hold our hands and walk us down the beach, into the woods until we find the “Small Village” where Dixon is waiting for us. We chat and catch up, I see little “small Tammy” (adorable with big huge infectious happy grin and likes to be tickled), cool fresh coconuts all around, flowers for our ears as we sat under a lovely shade tree next to their cook house. Little kids coming up shyly to look at the visitors, us. Older folks came by to shake hands and re-introduce themselves. An exercise in gentile politeness from which we can all learn. Grace and calm. Some discussion of the devastating effects of Cyclone Pam some years ago, wiping out the village but all rebuilt now with no sign of damage. Thatch houses have that advantage.

Soon Dixon was coming up with ideas of what we should do in the intended three-day stay, starting with the idea that we should stay four days. We should have a welcome party tonight with kava and a string band. Great! We should make a ‘Kastum Dans” for us. Quite amazing this. We should have a market day so we can buy lots of fresh produce. Maybe we want a couple canoes? And other souvenirs? And I mentioned that our doctor Tomas was willing to hold a clinic to see folks who may be ailing. The clinic building is quite a nice one but their young nurse had died suddenly and no replacement had come yet. We talked about having a lunch ashore of local foods in the village as a fundraiser for the Local Ladies Association, $3 each, not bad at all. They were going to charge $1 each but we insisted on $3. So the plan was forming for a good visit to Banam Bay, and now with such plans well formed and guided by Dixon, all the Picton Castle crew were welcomed ashore at magical Banam Bay, Malekula, Vanuatu.

Days’ Run – 9 October, 2018

A lovely Tuesday on board, the sun is bright and the sky is painted blue with collections of cumulus clouds. In order to arrive at Vanuatu by tomorrow, the Captain ordered our main engine to be fired up at 0600.  Lots of work to be done today, the spots on the foremast that were rust busted are receiving a coat of primer,  the oars from the Monomoy (our longboat) that haven’t yet been overhauled are being scraped on the well deck. The scullery porthole is also being scraped in preparation for paint, and sailmaking/ditty bag completion continues on the hatch today where a bit more shade lands on deck with the help of the sails to block the sun.

Sailmaking may seem like an easy task yet, on the contrary, it takes many hours of practice to get the skill of seaming down pat, along with the multitude of other skills that are required in order to complete or mend a sail. On top of the physical labour put into sailmaking, there is the managing and organization of all 20 sails plus the extras we keep stored on board. The sailmaker must track when a sail was made, ie how old it is and the numerous repairs it had done to it, these factors will determine when a sail needs replacing.

Everyone is looking forward to exploring the islands of Vanuatu and learning about a culture that is, for those who’ve never been there, very unfamiliar to us. There’s a rumour on deck that we will sail past a volcano, the crew is keen to lay eyes on it. This afternoon there will be a power shower at 1600! This way we’ll all be squeaky clean when we arrive tomorrow.

Day’s Run – 8 October, 2018

It’s Monday morning on board the Picton Castle and we’re back to our schedule of ship’s work to keep us busy on watch and, of course, to keep our lovely ship in good shape. Our engineer, Deyan of Switzerland, measured the monkey deck ladder with the help of his new assistant Kevin, of Sweden. Deyan plans to use the pipes that were once working as the heating system for the ship’s aft cabins to replace the ladder. He is prepping the pipes by grinding and cleaning them.

Our sailmaker, John, had a team of helpers this morning up on the quarterdeck including the chief mate Erin, trainees Sue and Braham, and third mate Corey, all assisting in seaming the main topmast stays’l, as well as Andy from Maine Maritime Academy. Crew members who are new to sailmaking were able to have a try at seaming scraps of canvas together and John guided those who are making ditty bags through the process.

Also spotted on the quarterdeck was our rigger, Anne-Laure of France, working high above the sailmakers seizing new ratlines on the mizzen shrouds. Sue and Robert rust busted the bottlescrews and turnbuckles on the foremast port side rigging.

Amongst this all, ship’s boy Dawson has been actively playing ‘catch me if you can’ as he calls it, which involves running all over the ship chasing him. When he closes his eyes, you cannot see him.

Off-duty crew members were doing their laundry on the well deck. If you think our ship comes complete with front load washers and industrial dryers, think again. We sailors do our own laundry, salt water buckets hauled up from the ocean, soaked, soaped and rinsed until the final fresh water rinse and hung to dry in hopes it doesn’t rain.

It’s been a active Monday morning. Our newest trainee from Denmark, Clara, paints the red racing stripe on our longboat. Tomas, our ship’s medical officer, sanded the gunnels of the dory Sea Never Dry and Dustin tarred the port side of the head rig. At 1500 the chief mate will hold a workshop on knots and splices for new hands and those who are interested in brushing up on their rope skills.

Day’s Run – 7 October, 2018

Sunday at sea and a true one at that! Even the sun took some rest by sleeping in. An overcast start to the day set the tone for a relaxed day. After a busy time in port, getting the ship ready for sea and setting out again the calm day was much appreciated by all. Niko, of Colorado, USA, cooked up a lovely breakfast of scrambled eggs, peppers and onions. With no power tools running today, only the sounds of sawing logs were heard from fellow shipmates’ bunks. Those who weren’t resting enjoyed each other’s company by playing board games in the salon, working on personal projects and socializing on the aloha deck. This afternoon the crew was able to have a movie showing in the hold! Yes, we sailors do love our movies, but mostly the popcorn. This move was called Tanna, about the Vanuatu Islands. At 1300 our band of ukeleles and singers rehearsed on the well deck, sending lovely tunes throughout the ship. Early this evening we held a marlinspike; music was played, crew members dressed in their best or most ridiculous shirts and popcorn was had. Oh yes and we wore ship… even with all the fun we had today, sail handling always comes first.
