The tallships are coming! The tallships are coming!

Monday, March 25th, 2013 | Posted by

The Lady Washington and the Hawaiian Chieftain will sail back into Bodega Bay the afternoon of April 2 (winds allowing). The two tallships took the entire county by storm last year when they showed up for the 200th anniversary of Bodega Bay.


They will be back again and open to the public April 3-7. Rancho Bodega Historical Society is coordinating volunteers to “walk the plank”, or escort groups down the docks at Spud Point to the ships, for public viewing. The public viewing times are Wednesday through Friday, 4 to 5 p.m., and Saturday and Sunday, 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.


The public cab book a two-hour evening sail on April 3, 6 or 7, and there are three-hour “battle sails” on Saturday and Sunday from 2 to 5 p.m. Last year crowds thronged the coast to watch the two vessels battle gracefully in full sail as they fired cannons at one another.


Tickets for the sails can be purchased online at historicalseaport.org.
