Enjoy this rare chance to sail on the A.J. Meerwald, a
beautifully restored turn-of-the-century schooner and New Jersey’s official tall ship. Learn hands-on seamanship skills from the captain and crew including raising the sails and taking a turn at the ship’s helm or just sit back and
watch the Palisades go by!
Captain Jesse Briggs, a native of Virginia who has been
working on boats since he was ten years old, says, “There’s no engine sound, and you travel at a leisurely pace. People relax and enjoy the scenery. How far
we go depends on the wind and tide.”
Children are welcome with parents. Bring your own refreshments: beer and wine are permitted onboard.
Limited spots available: register now/online advance tickets only. This fundraiser supports the work of Beczak Environmental Education Center.
Free and secure parking at Beczak, 35 Alexander Street, Yonkers, NY. Ship departs from the Yonkers Pier, a short walk away.
