Tall Ships Sail Into Tri-Cities

Posted: Updated:

PASCO, Wash.- We saw two ships come sailing in this weekend. The Lady Washington and the Hawaiian Chieftan docked over at Columbia Marina in Pasco.

Public tours were set up and entire families boarded the ships to sail back into history. The crew says their tours are not only fun, but they give you a good understanding of what it was like to sail hundreds of years ago.

"This is a piece of history that most people never get to experience, so it's a real pleasure for them to be able to come down," explained Barbara Kraler the Chief Mate of the Lady Washington.

The Lady Washington is the official ship of the state of Washington and is modeled after the original from the 18th century.
