Pirate Chaser Sails
During the summer months special “Pirate Chaser Adventure Sails” are scheduled on the tall ship Friends Good Will for the younger set, Wednesday though Saturday. The crew briefs the young recruits on operations and procedures that will insure not only the sighting of pirates, but also the capturing of the scoundrels and, in the tradition of the buccaneers, sharing in their loot. Never has so much adventure been packed into one 90-minute sail. For details and reservations call 1 800 747 3810 or purchase tickets online.
