ON THE SCHOONER PIONEER
Join us on September 24th, 2017 at the Haverstraw RiverArts & Music Festival
for 2 sailings in Emeline Park, Haverstraw, NY
Take a beautiful sail around Rockland County on a historic 1885 schooner!
See the sights of the Hudson River from the decks of the historic 130-year-old schooner PIONEER. The vessel, first launched in 1885, was built as an iron-hulled sloop to carry cargo along the Delaware River and was even featured in the pilot of Boardwalk Empire.
Bring your family (great for kids of all ages!) for an unforgettable sail out of Emeline Park in Haverstraw, New York on the schooner, PIONEER. Relax aboard the original way New Yorkers worked and traveled.
Bring a picnic lunch or dinner, afternoon snack, beverages or a bottle of wine to enjoy on your sail.
Schooner Pioneer is owned and operated by the South Street Seaport Museum in Manhattan. For the past several decades she has served as an education vessel teaching students of all ages about the history and science of our waterways and about our maritime heritage, through hands-on experiences on the water under sail.
