Tide's Out in Saint John

Spectators on the pier have a wonderful view of the crew of the Picton Castle furling sails prior to the start of Tall Ships Saint John in 2004. Tidal range in the Bay of Fundy is very large -- the range in the port of Saint John is 26 feet.

The Picton Castle is currently in the Caribbean near the end of it's fourth 'round-the-world voyage. Link here to follow the ship. You can sail on her in the Great Lakes this summer during the 2006 ASTA Tall Ships Challenge Series.
