If you can lend a helping hand during June 14th to 18th, the tall ships need you!

We have a variety of volunteer opportunities, suitable for any skill set. Dockside tour docents are needed, If you are familiar with Hawaiian Chieftain, Lady Washington, and their vessel history. If you can help with cooking, our cooks can use a hand keeping everyone fueled through the festival. Or just lend a hand to help visitors get on and off the ramp, and welcome them aboard. All helping hands are urgently needed by Lady Washington and Hawaiian Chieftain.

We are sending out a call to all who know and love our vessels to ask for help staffing volunteer shifts at Festival of Sail Tacoma. This is the first year of the event, being put on by Draw Events, which will feature 22 vessels gathering at the Thea Foss Waterway in Tacoma, June 14 to 18. Our regular crew is shorthanded, so help covering the festival schedule will be especially welcome.
