The 2012 Coupeville Arts and Crafts Festival will include a visit by the tall ship Hawaiian Chieftain, which is scheduled to arrive at the Port of Coupeville Wharf on Tuesday, Aug. 7. The ship will offer public tours and sails during the festival on Saturday, Aug. 11 and Sunday, Aug. 12.

Here’s the ship’s sailing schedule:

Aug. 8 -10: 1 to 5 p.m. Walk-on tours. $3 donation per person. No reservation required.

Aug. 9-11: 6 to 8 p.m. Evening Sail. $29 each.

Aug. 11-12: 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Walk-on tours. $3 donation per person. No reservation required.

Aug. 11: 2 to 5 p.m. Adventure Sail. $39 each.

The public is invited to all walk-on tours and sails, which offer a chance to see a real, working tall ship in action. Hawaiian Chieftain will sail in Penn Cove and nearby Puget Sound, conditions permitting. Crews in period costume will welcome visitors for walk-on tours, and the two-hour evening sails and three-hour adventure sails include opportunities to raise a sail, take the helm, and learn a sailor’s work song. Adventure sail tickets are $39 each; evening sail tickets are $29 each.

The steel-hulled Hawaiian Chieftain was launched in Lahaina, Hawaii, in 1988 and sails to more than 40 ports a year. Hawaiian Chieftain is usually accompanied by the tall ship Lady Washington. However, Lady Washington is undergoing a major hull restoration project in Aberdeen this summer to repair frames and replace hull planking.

Established in 1964, the Coupeville Arts and Crafts Festival is one of Washington State’s oldest, continuously run festivals. The festival is renowned for its focus on quality arts and crafts, handmade by artisans from the Pacific Northwest and beyond. The festival is produced annually by the nonprofit Coupeville Festival Association.
