The days of sailing ships which opened the Pacific to Europeans two centuries ago are being relived with the Canadian tall ship, Picton Castle at anchor in Cook Islands.

With a crew of 40 sail trainees and 12 instructors, the Picton Castle has already visited the Galapagos Islands and French Polynesia and will sail on to Pitcairn Island, which was home to many of the sailors who took part in the infamous mutiny on the British ship, the Bounty in 1789.
