She was built in 1928 and she was named after a castle in Wales. Until World War II she was used as a fishing trawler, and then was repurposed as a minesweeper. During this time, a mine exploded beneath her, lifting all 300 tons of her. Luckily, there wasn’t a lot of damage from this. In 1992, Captain Daniel Moreland found her in a fjord in Norway. Her engine was started and she made the track to New York where she was repaired and converted into the square-rigger she is today. Now, she is most well known for her annual Around the World Voyage. For 2021-2022 she is travelling to Panama, Galapagos, French Polynesia, Fiji, Bali, South Africa, St. Helena, Carribean, Bermuda and then back home to Nova Scotia.
