Sick and tired of the nine-to-five grind? Interested in learning tall ship sailing? Looking for something to do for 18 months? Have an extra $32,000? Reporter Jon Kalish visits the Picton Castle, a 70-year-old, three masted sailing ship staffed by a crew of 45 amateur and professional sailors. The Picton Castle's crew is a strange collection of people ranging in age from 19 to 64. The pros are teaching the former land lubbers how to sail as the Picton Castle travels around the world — twice.
