There are many ways to support or participate in the events of the schooner Suva.
The best way to support Suva is to become a member of the Whidbey Island Maritime Heritage Foundation. Your membership will help support the Maritime Heritage of Whidbey Island and Coupeville through our historic vessel, a 97 year old old-growth teak schooner designed by Ted Geary and built for local resident Frank Pratt in 1925. There are many levels of membership, and by becoming a member, you will be kept abreast of all Suva happenings and events, and invited to the annual “Love Me tender” valentine fundraiser!
As part of your WIMHF Membership, during Suva’s sailing season (May-October) all WIMHF members are entitled to a free cruise aboard Suva on any regularly scheduled sail..
You can JOIN HERE! After joining, you can choose to participate more by becoming a member of the Steering Committee or the Board of Directors, and help guide Suva into the future.
