Being able to actually sail on a tall ship has been a dream of mine for years. So, when my son had the opportunity to go on a field trip with our homeschool group on the Lady Washington and Hawaiian Chieftain, we jumped at the opportunity. It was so much fun to sail with the crew. One of the biggest surprises was how quiet it was once we were only powered by the wind. It was amazing. We put together a little video of our time on the ship. If you get the chance to go on one of these, do it. It is worth it.
