Subject: Dates for "James Craig" Day Sails
As per my previous emails, the historic, iron barque “James Craig” will be arriving in Port Phillip on 26th and departing on 17th March. Tall Ships Victoria (TSV) is acting as a coordinator in order to facilitate people with a maritime interest, as well as their families and friends, to enjoy a day sail in this magnificent, tall ship. Tall Ships Victoria (TSV) will set up TryBooking events for 2nd and 11th March (https://www.trybooking.com ) - boarding at Workshops Pier, Williamstown at 10.15h returning 1600h. Cost $130pp BYO lunch. Maritime organisations can pick one date and make bookings individually, or in groups. If the date is not convenient for some people they can book for the alternative date.
“James Craig” has not been to Melbourne for several years. We hope that this visit is well supported, so that her owner, the Sydney Heritage Fleet, will schedule her to make more frequent and regular visits here. I am very fortunate in having sailed in this ship and it is a wonderful experience. I strongly recommend it to everyone, particularly those with an interest in ships, and/or sailing. Please promulgate this opportunity as widely as possible.
