Public Sailing Adventures


Come sail with us in 2015!

All Clearwater sails, unless otherwise noted, will depart from and return to the same dock. The direction we sail in and how far we travel is dependent on the tide, current, and wind. As a traditional sailing vessel, we will spend as much time under sail as possible. Each Clearwater sail provides information about the River and the sites on its banks, but it is not a tour boat. The sloop Clearwater does have an engine to ensure that we can keep to a regular schedule. Sometimes the wind doesn’t cooperate and the boat doesn’t go very far or very fast, but we still prefer to keep our engine use to a minimum to avoid the loud noise and excess burning of fuel.
