We have an amazing, once in a lifetime opportunity. We have chartered Tall Ship Bill of Rights for our Cruiser’s Weekend event. Come can sail her, learn from her crew, eat and sleep aboard this historic ship for two nights and three amazing days. This is not a luxury cruise. Like the days of old, we can help set and drop sails, eat hot meals with the crew and sleep in sailing bunks (beds). See the sea from the perspective of the great explorers.
Sail this majestic Tall Ship with her professional crew over to Two Harbors, for our entire Catalina Cruiser’s Weekend event. We board the boat Friday, 11am at King Harbor, Redondo Beach, CA. We arrive in time for the event kick off – at the Harbor Reef with our live band. Live on the tall ship while you enjoy the event ashore including Saturday cruising seminars and a free live concert and BBQ Saturday night. Sail home Sunday morning, back around 2pm.

This just in … if you would like to do the delivery sail from Oxnard to King Harbor or King Harbor to Oxnard, email Woody. Additional donation to ATSI required.
If you prefer, there are showers ashore at Two Harbors, bring quarters. Two Harbors has a nice big shore boat to bring you in when the skiff is not available. Two Harbors link.
Our chartering of Bill of Rights enables the ship to do an entire other voyage teaching kids. THE AMERICAN TALL SHIP INSTITUTE
The primary purpose of the American Tall Ship Institute is to provide a marine based educational facility, or floating classroom, to be used by various organizations in the Ventura County area for marine education programs. The American Tall Ship Institute is working with local educational institutions to make marine education programs for a tall ship sailing vessel a reality. Educational programs include marine biology, environmental studies and maritime history, as well as sail training programs designed to teach and encourage a spirit of cooperation and discipline, highlighting the importance of team building, problem solving, decision making, planning, self-reliance and leadership. These programs provide youth with real-life challenges that develop knowledge, skills and attitudes needed to live healthy, productive lives.
