* Since we will be printing t-shirts only for those people signing up for the Flying Dutchman, the t-shirts will be sent out following Chamber Day with your "Pirate" name on it.
For those who can’t take a Wednesday off, we have the perfect solution—sign up for the Flying Dutchman. In nautical lore, the Flying Dutchman is bad news as it was the name of a mythical ship doomed to sail the seas forever and never reach port. But from a Chamber Day perspective, the Dutchman is a good thing because it helps us raise more money for our Chamber and gets you a unique T-shirt.
Our Flying Dutchman is the answer for folks who can't get wet on May 4 but who want to say they “dove” the event. You won’t really go anywhere but you’ll get all the other benefits of Chamber Day participation. An “on-board” raffle will be conducted, just like on all the other boats, and you’ll get a T-shirt—but yours will be unique. (And the consensus is that this is the best Dutchman design ever.)
Everyone who dives the Dutchman gets a special, limited-edition Flying Dutchman Chamber Day T-shirt that’s available only to those who dive the Dutchman. The back of the shirt features a unique design each year, while the front of the shirt will have your name on it as a member of the “Lost Crew” of the Flying Dutchman. You can either use your real name or make up your pirate name—it’s your choice (though we retain the right of final approval on any pirate name submitted).
Cost for the Dutchman remains at $95. This includes your T-shirt, on-board raffle ticket, and 5 Chamber Day raffle tickets. It’s a great way to participate if you can’t get away for the day. We generally have over 100 people “dive” the Dutchman each year and we're hoping that 2016 will be no exception.
To sign up for the Dutchman, either sign-up using the secure server or call Chamber day HQ at 310-652-4990.
