FAMED TALL SHIP LADY WASHINGTON TO VISIT CHULA VISTA AND OFFER PUBLIC SAILINGS
 
The tall ship Lady Washington, the official ship of the State of Washington and a star in several television programs and movies, will visit Chula Vista for 12 days in December and offer walk-on tours, public excursions, and living history education programs for K-12 students. The ship is scheduled to arrive at the California Yacht Marina, 640 Marina Parkway, Chula Vista, on Dec. 7 and berth at the excursion dock until Dec. 18. Lady Washington last visited Chula Vista in 1993. The public schedule is as follows:

12/8-9: Walk-on tours, 10 a.m. - 1 p.m. No reservation required, but $3 donation requested.

12/8-9: Adventure Sail, 2-5 p.m. $39 all ages.

12/11-14: Walk-on tours, 4-5 p.m. No reservation required, but $3 donation requested.

12/15-16: Walk-on tours, 10 a.m. - 1 p.m. No reservation required, but $3 donation requested.

12/15-16: Adventure Sail, 2-5 p.m. $39 all ages.

12/18: Walk-on tours, 4-5 p.m. No reservation required, but $3 donation requested.

Walk-on tours are an opportunity for visitors to explore Lady Washington and speak with her crew, who will be dressed in 18th century costume. The three-hour Adventure Sails feature a chance to help the crew raise a sail, take the helm of a real tall ship (conditions permitting), hear maritime stories, and learn a sea shanty. Tickets for Adventure Sails are $39 for all ages. To purchase tickets, visit www.historicalseaport.org or call 1-800-200-5239.

Lady Washington is also taking reservations from K-12 classes and home-school groups for one-hour and three-hour living history education programs aboard the ship. Public schools designated Title I by the U.S. Department of Education are eligible for large discounts on school programs. To learn more and make reservations, contact the education program manager at 1-800-200-5239.

Lady Washington, which is classified as a brig, has appeared in several popular television shows and motion pictures, most recently as Captain Hook’s ship Jolly Roger in the Oct. 21 episode of the ABC television series, “Once Upon a Time.” The ship also appeared as HMS Interceptor in the 2003 "Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pear"l and HMS Enterprise in the 1994 "Star Trek: Generations." Launched in 1989, Lady Washington is a replica of one of the first U.S.-flagged ships to explore the west coast of North America.
