R Tucker Thompson

NEW DATE - Saturday 26 March

Ahoy people of the Bay! Our pirate sails aren’t only for our young ones, now it’s time for us grown ups to have some fun.

Let your inner pirate go wild on a short 2-hour sail adventure, dress up as pirates and get your mates together for an epic evening on the iconic R. Tucker Thompson. We'll be serving up some pirate themed drinks, and a surprise that is sure to blow your socks off.

This sailing is a fundraiser and the proceeds from all tickets will go towards funding a place for a young person from the region on a 7-day youth development voyage.
