You will be greeted at Slip 2, Battery Park (Next to the Statue of Liberty Ferry). We will bring the bounty of the Hudson Valley into the city to be enjoyed on board the Clipper City Tall Ship. The sail will feature a tasting of both NY State Hard Cider and NY Fall Seasonal Craft Beers with four tastings total. The tastings will be led by the beer & cider brewers themselves; and we’ll also have some fall appropriate bratwurst to go along with the delicious drinks. Hot mulled cider will be available for purchase. All of this to be enjoyed while taking in NYC's fall colors and spectacular views of the NYC skyline and the Statue of Liberty.
Your host will be me; the food and drink will come from a local butcher and a gypsy brewery. I hold a 100-ton USCG Masters License with a sailing endorsement. I began my sailing career volunteering on an historic sailboat here in NY Harbor 30 years ago under the majestic gaze of the Statue of Liberty and the NY Skyline. I have been hosting tastings and foodie events on sailboats since 2001. Born and raised in NYC's East Village, it is only natural that I combined my love of sailing large vintage schooners with my appreciation for great food and drink. I take pride in offering an epic & laid back experience here in NY harbor; taking locals and visitors out to enjoy the quintessential sights (& tastes) for the past 19 years. Come on down to the Battery and enjoy some of NYC's sailing past & with some good Fall Fare.

Local Hard Cider
We will set sail before the sun sets and sail past the Statue of Liberty, Ellis Island, Governors Island, the Colgate Clock, see unparalleled view of the bridges of NYC & her skyline from the deck of a pre-Civil War Era replica Clipper Ship. We will go on a musical journey, sampling from ballads, bebop, swing and some deep blues; no matter where we go, it will always be straight-ahead Jazz that goes deep. It's an epic and sensory experience!!
