For those who can’t take a Wednesday off, we have the perfect solution—sign up to dive the Flying Dutchman. In fact, this year it's the lucky 13th edition of the Dutchman. As you may know from nautical lore, the Flying Dutchman was the name of a mythical ship doomed to sail the seas forever and never reach port. Our Dutchman’s fate is a bit more uplifting.

On Chamber Day, the mythical Flying Dutchman is our answer for folks who want to say they “dove” the event. You won’t really go anywhere (and you won’t get wet), 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 Chamber Day T-shirt—but yours will be unique.

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. This year, it features the Dutchman ferrying hapless divers to “The Chamber of the Doomed.” It will also 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, like all the other boats, is $95 (but no food and airfills to pay for). 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. For the past 5 years we’ve had over 100 people “dive” the Dutchman, and this year we're hoping to do even better.

To sign up for the Dutchman, either go online to www.chamberday.org or call 310-652-4990.
