At Last! reprovisions in Picton

We enter Picton Harbour by boat for the very first time, after seeing it from land countless times since the early 1990s.

Unexpectedly, we encounter At Last again, as the owners depart as we arrive. The weather must have forced a change of plans as they told us Cobourg was their destination when we met in Trenton a week earlier.

The Captain’s heart always skips a beat at the sight of a trimaran, this one called Sulis docked in front of the town houses at the head of Picton Bay.

Hello! I am the self-important Captain of the S.T.V. St. Lawrence II! I'm happy that you've felt so at ease making your defamatory remarks about my personality as you so clearly have the background to be able to make your accusations against both myself and the boat.

We are a not-for-profit youth sail training organization who have run year to year on shoe string budgets since 1953. We've done this while still meeting and surpassing Transport Canada regulations and keeping the boat and the program afloat so that we can continue offering youth from all backgrounds a chance to challenge themselves and grow as individuals. In order to do this we need to save money where we can - like the $110 dollar overnight dockage fee that the County of Prince Edward was so kind as to wave for us at the public wharf.

Also, we were not talking to the media, our education director was discussing future visits to Picton with representatives of Prince Edward County.

Again, thanks for your kind words of support!

Thank-You,
Chris Chafe,
S.T.V. St. Lawrence II
