A youngster climbs high aboard the Hawaiian Chieftain in Old Sacramento. Even with cloudy skies, the Chieftain is ready to sail.
According to Grays Harbor Historical Seaport:
"The topsail ketch Hawaiian Chieftain is a replica of a typical European merchant trader of the turn of the nineteenth century. Her hull shape and rigging are similar to those of Spanish explorer's ships used in the expeditions of the late 18th century along the Washington, Oregon, and California coasts. Built of steel in Hawaii in 1988 and originally designed for cargo trade among the Hawaiian Islands, her design was influenced by the early colonial passenger and coastal packets that carried on coastal trade along the Atlantic coastal cities and towns."
The Chieftain is docked in Old Sacramento. Tomorrow is the last day to enjoy a three-hour sailing adventure.
