Lady Washington

The Lady Washington sails into Coos Bay on May 3, 2017.

COOS BAY — The Lady Washington will not be coming to Coos Bay this year.

The Coast Guard has closed the bar to any vessel looking to come into Coos Bay this weekend due to dangerous bar conditions.

“It’s dangerous for any boat,” Coos Bay Boat Building Director Tom Leahy said.

For the first time in over eight years the ship will not be docking on our Boardwalk for the Bay Area to enjoy.

Rough seas delayed the ship from making its original schedule, and now the poor bar conditions have canceled its trip completely.

Leahy would still like to encourage the community to make it down to the Coos Bay Boardwalk tomorrow for the March for Science. There will also be a sing along at 7 Devils Brewery on Sunday.  

Those who purchased tickets in advance should contact Grays Harbor Historical Seaport at 360-532-8612.
