This is exciting news for sailors and lovers of the sea.
You can ride on one of these boats for a nominal fee, and experience first-hand what it was like to navigate – by sail – the cool, wild waters of the North Coast.
The “Lady Washington” has appeared in numerous films, including the following:
- Star Trek: Generations (Paramount Pictures, 1994)
- The West (IMAX)
- Pirates of the Caribbean: Curse of the Black Pearl (Walt Disney Pictures, 2003)
- Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest (Walt Disney Pictures, 2006)
- Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End (Walt Disney Pictures, 2007)
- Blackbeard (Stonewerks Productions)
- The Real Story: Pirates of the Caribbean (Blink Films for the Smithsonian Channel, 2011)
This writer was lucky enough to have sailed on the Hawaiian Chieftain – from Eureka to Crescent City – in March, 2010.
It was an exciting trip. We were fortunate, with brisk southern winds and ten-to-twelve foot southerly swells. We arrived more than an hour quicker than what the captain had plotted on his charts.
You can arrange for a similar adventurous passage, with shared responsibilities, accommodations, and camaraderie with the crew.
They will sing for you: sea-chanties!
