Captain’s Log – Lunenburg, NS to Cape Charles, VA

Written by Ashley Mulock We’ve been at anchor for two nights now at the mouth of the York River on Chesapeake Bay, enough time to reflect back on the journey that brought us here. Sailing in under clear blue skies and a cool breeze it hardly seems real that only two days ago we were […]

Day’s Run – June 13, 2015

Wow – what a day! We opened the ship for tours from 9am-4pm and had a steady stream of people all day. The heat and humidity was fierce and our crew did an admirable job of keeping each other hydrated and/or rotating through the sunny areas of the ship. The people coming aboard were in […]

Reports from crew members ashore say the ice cream is plentiful, the coffee fantastic and both are just the thing to while away the time it takes to finish a load of laundry. On the ship we hosted the Welcome Party for 50-60 people, copious amounts of food and a live band. Our crew did […]

We have arrived in Cape Charles! Docking just before noon, the crew is excited to be able to set foot on dry land once more… mostly for laundry, a solid wifi signal and a cold drink. The Starboard watch has been stood down and is even now roaming about town, no doubt looking also for […]

The best part about today was the special treat of being able to ride in the skiff to take pictures of the Picton Castle with all sails set. Despite there being little to no wind we had all the sail set to dry from the rain of two nights ago. SHIP’S WORK: We finished up […]

Day’s Run – June 9, 2015

Today had been entirely about beautifying the ship for our arrival into Cape Charles…and man is she looking good! A whole lot of elbow grease makes a huge difference. We’ve also had a steady stream of small local boats cruising by to see what we have been up to. The pictures they must be snapping […]

Day’s Run – June 8, 2015

What a busy day today has been! Once again we were able to sail with all sails set. This does require a fairly steady stream of sail handling in order to catch as much wind as possible. This, in turn, means the skill set of our trainees continues to improve. As we sailed into the […]

Day’s Run – June 7, 2015

Millions of stars, a stunning sunrise and a clear blue sky ushered us through the day today. The sun is hot, the breeze cool and the occasional wave soaking has become something to look forward to once again. To top all of that off, in the last few minutes of the 6am-12pm watch the sudden […]
