CHARLES W. MORGAN
“After we returned to Lunenburg in June 2003 from our third voyage around the world in the Picton Castle, I got a letter from friends and colleagues at Mystic Seaport.” Writes Picton Castle Captain Dan Moreland. He continues with, “They asked me if I would be interested in talking about a project idea they had had to do with the Picton Castle‘s 2005-2006 world voyage and the Morgan.” And thus was born (or is it borne?) PICTON CASTLE’s Sail Through History.
At the ASTA annual conference Capt. Moreland will relate the connections (note the plural) between his barque and the last wooden whaler in the world.
