Delightful and soothing live music will greet you - either Bosanova, classical or some other Easy Sunday morning music. I was raised in a Jazz and Classical music family; because of the beauty of the experience, we are able to attract acclaimed musicians to come play aboard our vessel. You will be invited on board our clipper ship, the CLIPPER CITY TALL SHIP, where you can take the edge off your morning with a bloody mary or mimosa as you receive a short safety speech and orientation where questions will be answered. We will motor off the dock and get underway; raising sails once we have cleared the sea wall. We sail around the harbor for 1.5 hours past the Statue of Liberty, Ellis Island, Governors Island, in view of bridges and other landmarks of NY Harbor. You will be able to walk around the vessel and engage my knowledgeable crew with any questions you might have. With the wind in your hair, Seagulls, buoys, foghorns and passing ships and tugboats will give you a serene start as you plan the rest of your day in NYC. You will disembark energized and with a pleasant and subtle buzz. Your perfect Sunday awaits...
I've been hosting cocktail & other cruises with NYC's most accomplished musicians for over 15 years. I was born and raised in a musical family in NYC & I began volunteering aboard historic sailboats in NY Harbor approx. 30 years ago. I and my captains hold USCG-issued 100-ton captain's licenses; sharing our love of sailing under the majestic gaze of the Statue of Liberty & NYC Skyline with locals & visitors for the past 19 years. My largest boat, the CLIPPER CITY, is a 158' replica of a pre-Civil War Era boat built in 1854; she sailed until 1892. She was the fastest and largest ship of her day. Your host will be either me or one of my friendly captains - Mike, Ray or Syed. We take pride in offering an intimate, casual experience here in NY harbor; you will get in your sightseeing trip to the Statue along with an exhilarating sail!!
