Photo Issue: Tall Ship Picton Castle

June 15 1999

For those of you who haven't checked out Torresen Sailing Site's Intersail Web Directory, you should.  The Intersail Directory can be the key to interesting stories such as today's.  Intersail has website listings for   sailing topics such as Tall Ships.

One of the tall ship websites listed is the Picton Castle .  Recently the Picton Castle's Director of Information sent us a story  about the ships almost   completed circumnavigation.  Today, we present a brief summary of the Picton Castle's voyage.  In addition there are several photos of the ship under sail.   Look for more on Picton Castle in Wednesday's Around the World of Sailing.

Picton Castle circumnavigation ends- by Angelo Cerchion

LUNENBURG, NOVA SCOTIA -- When the Picton Castle at last nuzzles the dock on Wednesday, some 40 sea-seasoned souls will exult in the magic moment of arrival. For 570 days their 180-foot, three-masted, square-rigged sailing ship skimmed and ploughed its way 'round the world -- a 37,000-mile voyage that spanned 47 ports in 22 countries and crossed four oceans and three seas.
