In fact, as has been observed by Master Mariner and Sail Trainer Daniel Moreland, Captain of the Picton-Castle, more men have walked on the moon in recent times than have commanded a vessel in circumnavigating the globe the 'old fashioned way'.


History of Nova Scotia, 2000 August 1-5

"It's kind of a show of the flag thing," Capt. Daniel Moreland said of the trip, which will see the vessel visiting the ports of Buffalo, New York, Cleveland, Ohio, Sarnia, Ontario, South Haven, Michigan, Chicago, Illinois, Wyandotte, Michigan and Erie, Pennsylvania, before heading back to Lunenburg to prepare for a second world voyage in November.
It has already been a busy year for the ship, which departed June 1, 2000, to join Tall Ships 2000 events at Bermuda. Since that time, the vessel has been welcoming a new group of young sail trainees roughly every week as part of the Tall Ships Millennium Challenge youth initiative. It's a schedule that's been particularly hard on the ship's regular crew. "This ship is a great square-rigged training ship but the shorter trips are harder because there's just so much to learn," said Capt. Moreland. Still, "we knew that going in," he said, and "were a party to the decision. It was basically the choice between "40 people having an incredibly in-depth experience or 200 having a wonderful taste," said the skipper, who always favoured the latter option. And it's really not accurate to say the trainees only got a taste. "No, they got an in-depth experience too," said the captain, "but you know, the younger they are the more this is an in-depth thing because this is a greater portion of their life and their life experience. "For an older person, it wouldn't have been." In fact, in many ways, shorter trips were probably better given the nature of this summer's schedule, said Capt. Moreland, named sail trainer of the year by the American Sail Training Association in 1999. "We did a lot of repetitious stuff in terms of the Tall Ships events," he said, "and if they were on all summer and went to five Tall Ships events they would have gotten jaded. All that changed this spring when the Lunenburg resident was contacted by Capt. Daniel Moreland of the barque Picton Castle. "I was sitting home playing with my grandson when I got the call," Capt. Gurney recalls. "He said he wanted to meet me down at Bluenose II. At the time, I didn't really know what it was about." It turned out Capt. Moreland needed a second mate and had heard about Capt. Gurney via Bluenose II skipper Orval Banfield, himself a former fishing captain. Reached by satellite phone en route to Pukapuka in the Cook Islands, Captain Daniel Moreland, skipper of the Picton Castle, elaborated on the ship's mission.

Dan Moreland, senior captain of the Picton Castle, said Gainey is a volunteer on the tall ship.
Moreland described the situation as "completely devastating for everybody" on the vessel, which undertakes voyages around the world. He said hundreds of former crew members of the ship have expressed concern. "It could happen to any ship, to any captain," he said from headquarters.
