Tall Ships Prep For Rusty Scupper Pirate Daze

To purchase tickets for all sails, visit www.historicalseaport.org or call 800-200-5239.


The ships will also be open for walk-on tours from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. on Friday, June 24, and 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday, June 25 and 26. A $3 donation per person is appreciated.


At noon on Saturday, the Historical Seaport will announce the winner of the “Float the Fleet: Pirates & Privateers” fundraising contest. Nearly a dozen pirate captains and crews are competing to raise money for education programs aboard Lady Washington and Hawaiian Chieftain. The winner will receive Lady Washington as a “prize,” meaning she will be the crew’s official ship for a full year. Lady Washington will also fly the crew’s flag from her masthead. Pirate crews can still sign up for the contest, which ends June 20. For information on the full suite of prizes, visit the Historical Seaport website, www.historicalseaport.org or call 800-200-5239.
