Lorraine Ralston of Tall Ships Tacoma called me back with a few numbers that could be of interest.

�—� There will be 550 people working security at the festival. That’s a combination of volunteers, contract security officers and public agency employees (like the Tacoma Police Department, Coast Guard, etc.)

�—� The organization signed up more than 200 people for memberships – more than double their original goal of 100.
