Tall ships visit Port of Redwood City

 

The tall ships Lady Washington and Hawaiian Chieftain and their costumed crews will arrive at the Port of Redwood City for a 13-day visit on March 31. Lady Washington appeared as the HMS Interceptor in the movie "Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl."

The ships will be open to the public and educational groups for tours and re-enacted cannon battles between the ships. Guests are invited to help raise a sail or take the helm, conditions permitting.

Dockside tours require no reservations. A $3 donation is requested. Battle re-enactment cruises are scheduled for Saturday and Sunday, April 4 and 5, and Saturday, April 11. Tickets are $75 for adults, $67 for students, seniors, and active military, and $39 for children.

Based in Aberdeen, Washing, Lady Washington and Hawaiian Chieftain specialize in hands-on education programs for fourth-, fifth- and sixth-grade children. The ships welcome volunteers for two-week sail training programs.
