Join the tall ship Picton Castle in Lunenburg, Nova Scotia on June 10th 2019 for an unforgettable 21 day adventure that both begins and ends in Canada. You'll be getting hands on with setting the sails, steering the ship, keeping watch and more throughout the voyage and the best part is that no experience is required in order to join - you'll be taught everything you need to know before you need to know it at every stage throughout the journey.
Ocean passages can bring conditions fit for only the boldest adventurers seeking the ultimate challenge.
After departing Lunenburg you'll sail north up the Atlantic coast of Nova Scotia before crossing the Gulf of St. Lawrence and heading up the St. Lawrence River past Montreal. From there you'll sail through the beautiful Thousand Islands in the St. Lawrence River before arriving at Toronto on Canada Day weekend. You'll likely be getting to grips with small boat sailing too, both under sail and by the power of the oar!
As a part of the Tall Ships Challenge® series you can expect a warm welcome in Toronto with a chance to meet and possibly even compete with crews of all the other ships. Whilst aboard Picton Castle you'll find yourself learning more with every day that goes by with a crew that's more than happy to answer any questions you have and skill-building workshops taking place throughout the journey.
If you're thinking of spending more time aboard you'll be pleased to know you're more than welcome to with a 10% discount on your voyage fee if you sail for more than one of the Tall Ships Challenge® legs.
Your journey aboard this beautiful Barque will end in Toronto, Ontario where you'll find yourself a part of Redpath Waterfront Festival 2019 and disembark on July 1st.
