The brig Lady Washington will tie up at Antioch Municipal Marina, 5 Marina Plaza, on Tuesday, Nov. 4 for a six-day stay. During her visit, the 112-foot-tall ship, which played a British warship in the 2003 film Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl, will welcome visitors for walk-aboard tours and public sailings.
The vessel is the official ship of the State of Washington and a tall ship ambassador for its home port of Grays Harbor, Wash.
Lady Washington will open for dockside tours on Saturday and Sunday, Nov. 8 and 9, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. both days. A $3 donation per person is requested. At 2 p.m. on both days, the ship will offer three-hour family-oriented Adventure Sails, featuring opportunities for passengers of all ages to help sail the ship led by a crew member in period costume.
Tickets for the Adventure Sails are $55 for adults, $45 for students, seniors and active military, and $35 for children under 12. Reservations are strongly recommended. Call 800-200-5239 or visit www.historicalseaport.org.
The two-masted Lady Washington, with a mainmast 89 feet tall, is a full-scale replica of the first American-flagged vessel to visit the west coast of North America. Traveling in 1788 with another ship, the Columbia Rediviva, the Lady Washington traded for furs with native peoples of the Pacific Northwest.
