If you missed the tall ships last week, you now have a second chance to watch the Lady Washington and Hawaiian Chieftain pass through the Ballard Locks on Thursday, Sept. 13. The historic ships have been in Lake Washington since the 7th, offering tours and sails to the public. On Thursday they’ll be leaving Seattle, bound for Olympia.
While they can’t give us an exact time that they’ll be passing through the Locks, Zachary Stocks from Historical Seaport tells My Ballard it should be before lunchtime.
Another way to track the boats, if you’re so inclined, is to look for them on shipfinder.co, which is a real-time map of registered vessels. (Zoom in on Seattle and you may be able to spot them.)
