Daphné Robichaud, of Bathurst, New Brunswick, stands aboard the Picton Castle, one of eight ships where winners of a Radio-Canada contest got to live the sailor’s life.

The contrast was striking.
During the parade of sailors through the streets of the old city on Thursday, there were the official military types in their gleaming, crisp white uniforms; and then there were the Sail Training International (STI) sailors dressed in a crazy array of costumes, singing boisterous shanties of their home ships.

Formal or casual, they all have lived life on the sea.
