If you like to sail now is your chance to do it like your granddaddy did, aboard a tall ship as part of the working crew on the Californian. Three and four day trips are available; the first is set for the weekend of May 23rd, another at the end of July and the final sailing is Labor Day weekend, September 4Th.
You'll stand watch, haul lines, spend some time in the crow's nest or even take a turn at the wheel as you sail from the San Diego Maritime Museum up to Santa Catalina Island and back. The Californian is a replica of an 1847 Revenue Cutter. She's Coast Guard certified and has been to sea many times since being built on the shores of San Diego Bay back in 1984. The schooner has sailed to Hawaii, Mexico and even made passage through the Panama Canal on her way to the east coast.
Space is limited so you'll want to contact the Maritime Museum to get more information ASAP.
