When: March 5-24 2009
Two 18th-century vessels will dock at Jack London Square harbor from March 5 through 24 for three weeks of visitor tours, sailings, and opportunities to climb the rigging -- up to seventy feet above the water. Lady Washington and Hawaiian Chieftain will mark their arrival this Thursday, Mar. 5 with a 5 p.m. cannon salute. Activities will include three-hour battle sails (old-fashioned naval bouts, complete with cannon fire -- $50-$60) and Sunday morning adventure sails ($45-$55). "Tours aloft" ($20) for the nimble-bodied include a harness and fixed belay system. HistoricalSeaport.org or 800-200-5239.
