the only thing that stopped this from being totally great was the weather was not sunny and very windy. on a warmer day, it would have been fantastic. crew were very friendly and drinks were ample. Food was nice.

What an incredible experience - being part of a regatta!! Something we usually only get to see on television. We purchased the tickets thinking we'd be spectators and never dreamed we would be in the race. It was exhilirating! The captain and...continued

Description

Take advantage of this rare opportunity to sail as a guest aboard the Adirondack_ _or the Adirondack III while she participates in a Classic Regatta!

Join the crew for a lunch of fruit, gourmet sandwiches, chips, and dessert as Classic Harbor Line’s highly experienced racing crew and captains compete in the “New York Classic Week” races.

The participants in this race are all classic sailing vessels of varying size and sail plans, so expect to see other schooners, sloops, ketches, and fifes from the turn-of-the-century vying for marks across the New York Harbor. The stunning bright work and beautiful classic lines of these historic vessels have been specially maintained by their owners and offer great photo opportunities! Races are scheduled Wednesday through Sunday with a 12:00 gun. Each race each day will have a different course with the new York Harbor.

Some of the famous sites you’ll view along the way are:

  • The New York City skyline
  • 20-acre Battery Park at the southern tip of Manhattan, where artillery has been stationed over the centuries
  • Ellis Island, the immigrant doorway to America from 1892 to 1954
  • The Statue of Liberty, a French gift that arrived in New York Harbor in 1885 and has come to represent our nation’s freedom and ideals
  • The New York City Waterfalls

Complimentary champagne, wine, beer and soda will be provided. (One quick note: they will serve a few rounds, but it is not an unlimited booze-cruise. They aim to create an elegant, relaxing, peaceful, and safe experience for all of our guests.)

Join Classic Harbor Line for a New York Classic Week Race Aboard the Adirondack or Adirondack III, and you’ll experience NYC like never before.

About the Ticket Supplier: Classic Harbor Line LLC

Built in 1994 in the Scarano Boat Building of Albany, New York, the Schooner Adirondack is an 80-foot wooden replica of a classic turn-of-the-century pilot schooner.

Heading south from Chelsea Piers and down the Hudson River to Battery Park, the Schooner Adirondack passes by Ellis Island and sails out to the Statue of Liberty. Wind and time permitting, she will head toward Governor’s Island, breeze by the Financial District and the Brooklyn Bridge on the East River.

The 1920s-style motor yacht “Manhattan,” also built by Scarano Boat Building, is brand new to the New York City harbor as of spring 2006. This 80-foot, wood-trimmed, Gilded Era commuter yacht runs full circumnavigations of Manhattan, dinner cruises and sunset cruises, and is available for private charter.
