Come Sail With ALNNJ On The Sloop Clearwater!

Come Sail With ALNNJ On
The Sloop Clearwater!
 
September 28th 2019
From 11:00 AM to 2:00 PM
 
All ALNNJ members, friends and family are welcome to attend this not-to-be-missed event!
 
The Cost Per Person to Attend is $40.00
 
The sloop Clearwater, a replica vessel modeled after the Dutch vessels that sailed the Hudson River in the 18th and 19th centuries, was the brainchild of Pete Seeger who started the organization to promote the cleanup and preservation of the Hudson River. It was launched on May 17, 1969 from Harvey Gamage Shipyard in South Bristol, Maine.
 
Those early cargo vessels were specially designed for the variable winds, currents and depths of the Hudson. Sailing from town to town today, the Clearwater models her course after that of the historic Dutch sloops.
 
Their cargoes and crews were the main communication link between riverfront towns and outlying areas which now house one-tenth of this nation’s population. Clearwater continues that tradition as a vital link between communities and carries a message to the people who sail on her and see her iconic broad sails from the shore about the beauty and wealth of our region’s waterways – and the everlasting need to protect, preserve and celebrate them.
 
There will be an educator on board the Clearwater to answer questions about the river, its history and the current status of its water and life. The Architects League of Northern New Jersey will be joined on this fun sail with members of Park Ridge, New Jersey’s Rotary Club. It promises to be a great day!
