On Sunday, March 9 there will be a Battle on the Bay, real gun powder... real cannons, between the "Lady Washington" and the "Hawaiian Chieftain" from Washington State.
This will be to watch those 2 ships battle it out from a 3rd ship, the Freda B. People on this ship will not be on the ships battling it out, which is the other event Norm is hosting. Freda is a very comfortable, fun boat, which offers a very nice "solid" ride.
The Golden Gate Tall Ships Society www.ggtss.org has chartered the beautiful schooner "Freda B" for members and guests to watch the battle, from a safe distance. A wonderful opportunity to see both ships in action and make your own decision about the "winner' for the day. Fantastic and unique photo op here!
*Do not forget to bring your camera!*! And while you are at it, some friends! Cost remains the same as last year, GGTSS Members $65, Guests of Members $75 and others $85.
