Sausalito’s work-in-progress tall sailing ship, The Matthew Turner, will soon reach another milestone this weekend. The nearly finished ship will move from its harbor building site down into the water of the San Francisco Bay. KRCB’s Tiffany Camhi reports.

The Crew of the Matthew Turner plans to launch the ship at 5 p.m. on Saturday, April 1st at the Bay Model, Corps of Engineers ramp in Sausalito. The public is invited to view the launch from the Bay Model parking lot or Marinship Park.

The historic tall sailing ship that’s been under construction for over two years in Sausalito is nearing completion. This weekend the final plank, traditionally known as the “Whiskey Plank”, will be laid and celebrated. KRCB’s Tiffany Camhi reports.

Tickets to Educational Tall Ship and Call of the Sea's annual benefit gala sold out quickly this year. But you can still support the effort through an online silent auction and donations through its website.
