Visiting Vessels: Lady Washington and Hawaiian Chieftain



The Lady Washington is the Official Ship of the State of Washington. The Hawaiian Chieftain accompanies her on her voyages and goodwill missions. Both ships will be moored at Lake Union Park for Opening Day of boating season, from April 30th through May 2. They will be open for dockside tours, and will stage a Battle Sail at 3pm on Saturday, May 1.

What is a Battle Sail? A Battle Sail is a recreation of a typical 18th century naval action. Lady Washington and Hawaiian Chieftain maneuver around each other for the best position to fire small, butloud cannons. Which boat will survive? Of course, both boats use blanks, and it's all in good fun!
