The Apprenticeship, 655 Main St., presents Tom Ward with a talk Feb. 20 at 6 p.m. about his experience converting the Picton Castle from a trawler to a sailing bark and what it was like to participate in the subsequent 19-month circumnavigation. He will share anecdotes and sea stories from the voyage, beginning to end.

Admission is free, with donations accepted. For more information, contact 594-1800 or info@apprenticeshop.org.
