I've covered this ship before, so won't bore you by repeating that, but for those interested I do recommend you Google 'Ship Picton Castle' where all the facts and history can be read.
Once again I failed to get a shot of her leaving, as a matter of fact, I've no idea what the 'Parade of Sail' was like in the inner harbour, but out where I was at Fergusons Cove it was a pretty straggly affair, I had been there early, was getting hungry, and left long before all the ships had passed.
V1 shows her at her moorings ahead of Peacemaker.
V2 to 7 are shots showing some close up views, the stern view shows her Port of Registry as Avatiu, but that's for taxation purposes, as her actual home port is Lunenburg, NS, Canada.
V8 shows a stall they had set up on the wharf where you could buy artifacts they'd brought back from the South Seas, as well as the ubiquitous teeshirts! There was also a sign offering you the opportunity to sign up for the next voyage leaving in October. The ship carries a permanent crew of 12 and has space for about 40 working passengers.

Many thanks to those who took the time to look, comment and vote on Barquentine Peacemaker, greatly appreciated as always!

Another grand set, Jim, I like the inclusion of the canoeists in V.1, giving an idea of the size of these beautiful tall ships. Carol

Another fine set of maritime images, full of detail and colour, certainly plenty to look at.

You certainly had a lovely day for these Jim. Clarity and sharpness throughout. Thanks also for the commentary.

I'm particularly drawn to the crop in v5 - I have a certain like for images that go in a bit closer, and this does.

What a super series Jim, you certainly had perfect weather for the event. My mum's cousins daughter Marjolaine was a navigator on this ship a few years ago.

Superb captures here, Jim. The light and colours are wonderful! I love the scene in V8. I wish I had the guts to take shots like that. I worry too much about being spotted Smile
