Historic Tall Ships Are Back in Coos Bay in July!

See the historic Lady Washington and Hawaiian Chieftain at the Coos Bay Boardwalk July 12th-24th

The public is invited to experience maritime history when the brig Lady Washington and the topsail ketch Hawaiian Chieftain dock at the Coos Bay Boardwalk July 12th-24th, 2018. This is welcome news to our community after the Lady Washington was unable to complete her voyage to Coos Bay in April due to weather conditions.

The Lady Washington is a full-scale reproduction of the original Lady Washington, the first American vessel to make landfall on the west coast of North America in 1788. The Hawaiian Chieftain is a replica of a typical European merchant trader of the turn of the nineteenth century. Her hull shape and rigging are similar to those of Spanish explorer’s ships used in the expeditions of the late 18th century along the Washington, Oregon, and California coasts.
