About the sail

A light-hearted 2-hour sailing on board the R. Tucker Thompson!

Saturday, 27 May 2017 – 14:00-16:00

Youngsters (and their adults) get to dress up as pirates and enjoy a special Pirate sailing on board Northland’s own tall ship in Whangarei Harbour. 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.

The sail includes a Tucker tattoo for the kids, with a chance to help raise sails and climb the rigging under the watchful eye of the crew. The best dressed family will win a prize!

Go on, indulge your inner pirate!

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to sail on a tall ship? This is your opportunity to find out! This sailing is open to the general public – everyone is welcome. Bring your friends, grandparents and partners. The ship will depart from  Onerahi Wharf at 11:30 for a 2-hour sail in Whangarei Harbour.
