Description: 

The Lady Washington Tall Ship Battle Sail Tour offers attendees the opportunity to enjoy a 3-hour cruise on the replica brig Lady Washington. The ship embodies maritime history of the last 1700’s and early 1800’s. The three-hour Battle Sails feature booming cannons, close-quarters maneuvers, and a taste of 18th century maritime life aboard tall ships. Passengers are invited to raise the sails, verbally taunt their opponents, and sing the chorus on a sea shanty for a Three Hour Tour!!

The day will begin with a driving tour in the morning arriving at Cap Sante Marina, in Anacortes, WA. Audi Club NW has reserved an exclusive charter aboard the Lady Washington. The sail will depart from Squalicum Harbor Marina, in Bellingham, and the cruise will be in Bellingham Bay from 2-5 pm. After the sail, there will be a group drive for those returning to the Seattle area. We are planning a special greeting in Bellingham; details are being finalized now.

This tour is a unique opportunity to enjoy the history of a time gone by, when sailing ships traveled the seas. This is sure to be a popular family event and perhaps a once in a lifetime opportunity. This is another in a series of tours scheduled over the years to bring to Audi Club NW members some of the many spectacular reasons we choose to live in the Pacific Northwest.

The cost for this tour is estimated to be $40 per person. The brig has room for only 45 passengers, so be sure to reserve your place on this tour early. Audi Club Northwest continues to offer new social and driving events each driving season. However, you do not need to own an Audi to participate in group tours. Drivers are encouraged to bring family and friends to participate and meet other Audi enthusiasts.
