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.

Dan Moreland - Master Mariner, Captain of the Picton Castle

By Captain Daniel Moreland
Captain Moreland had been the Mate in the Romance in the mid 1970s before sailing in the full-rigged ship Danmark. He says that it was his most formative sea experience by far, and the Picton Castle is a direct result. There's a picture of our own Captain Dan Moreland in the museum next to the giant window that overlooks the Niagara's berth, taken when the Captain served as Mate on the Niagara.

This year, we had the honour of hosting Captain Moreland's mentor, Captain Arthur Kimberly (also know as "Skipper") along with some of the old crew of the Brigantine Romance on board for a few days.
They sailed around the world twice, once with our Captain Dan Moreland as Mate. They also spent many months in the South Pacific and around the Caribbean. The Romance was not Skipper's first ship for he left home at the age of 17, just after finishing high school, and signed onboard a 2500 ton Swedish four-masted barque with just 13 crew! (He later told me they might have been a little short handed!) He spent his life sailing the seas, and Romance was to be his last command, but not his last sail or ship. Skipper spent one afternoon aboard with my watch spending time with his old crew, and meeting some of the Picton Castle crew. Within moments of him stepping aboard you could tell that this was where he belonged. As an ancient mariner he paced the decks all day inspecting the rigging, pulling on lines, giving skilful advice to the sail makers, and spinning yarns of his days at sea. Lunch came and the watch gathered round as Skipper went through picture books of the "Last Age of Sail" with us, having been there is his early days at sea. Hearing his first hand account of what it was like to sail in these ships, known only to us as they appear in photographs or tied to docks of maritime museums was truly something special.
