LadyWashington                                        HawaiianChieftan

S/V Lady Washington                    VS                       S/V Hawaiian Chieftian

Enjoy a friendly competition aboard the Tall Ships Lady Washington and Hawaiian Chieftain.
Experience first-hand a historical journey back in time to the 1800’s during the Age of Sail
aboard the magnificent and majestic tall ships when the world was being explored. Meet on neutral ground at the Port of Brownsville to board your time capsule. The Ships will conduct close quarter sailing maneuvers to strategically fire canons (blanks) at the rudder of the other ship. Who will have the weather gauge – only the skill of the Captains and Crew will determine your fate. The Crews will be furiously working the sails and lines to capture the wind to propel the massive ships. Which ship will survive and which will be a prize with her cargo?
It’s not did we win, but did we survive!
