Suffok Times: The barque Picton Castle is the most traveled of the tall ships that will drop anchor in Greenport Harbor this Memorial Day weekend.
In addition to many other trips, the ship has completed five global circumnavigations in the past 15 years, according to a spokesman for the ship, visiting the Galapagos Islands, Pitcairn Island, Mangareva, Takaroa, Tahiti, Moorea, Huahine, Bora Bora and other spots in French Polynesia. Soon, it will follow the wind to Tonga, Samoa and the Cook Islands, ending up in Rarotonga a year from now.
