It was a flurry of activity in the Historical Seaport’s Aberdeen office yesterday when John Bartell, a reporter with ABC-10 News Sacramento, called to say that he’d just witnessed an unusual sight: a historic tall ship on the Sacramento River.

With the permission of a Sacramento-area school coming aboard that afternoon, the Hawaiian Chieftain and her crew had a successful sail that is now featured in the video below. Check it out!
