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.

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.
