Barque Picton Castle Departs Gloucester

The Barque Picton Castle is a three-masted tall ship based in Lunenburg, Nova Scotia, Canada.

It has completed her sixth circumnavigation around the world in May of this year.

She was in Gloucester harbor for a few days before heading north to Portland, for a Schooner Festival.

During her departure, our own schooner the Thomas E. Lannon, made chase after a 30 minute head start, to wish her a safe voyage.

Below are some photos taken from the Breakwater, Enjoy.
