Kiddies Pirate Sail


About the sail

A light-hearted 2-hour sailing on board the R. Tucker Thompson!
Thursday 27 January 2018 – 16:00-18:00

Youngsters (and their adults) get to dress up as pirates and enjoy a special Pirate sailing on board Northland’s own tall ship on a late afternoon sail in the Inner Bay. Let your inner pirate go wild and get creative for this fun-filled sailing. It’s a chance to “argh!” and “shiver me timbers” while the children can have some fun and play at pirates.

All passengers should be appropriately attired – adult pirates included. Failure to wear appropriate dress could lead in being asked to walk the plank!

Go on, indulge your inner pirate!
