Join Clearwater on August 5th for a unique sunset sail aboard the sloop and meet Mark Siegel, author and illustrator of “Sailor Twain,” the popular web comic about the Hudson River, steamboats, and a bewitching mermaid. In “Sailor Twain,” Siegel chronicles the adventures of Captain Twain aboard his steamboat, The Lorelei, and the mythical siren that casts a spell over him and his crew in this saga set in 1887 and rich with the romance of the Hudson River of the 19th Century.

The Sailor Twain Sail aboard the sloop Clearwater departs at 6pm on August 5th from the 79th St Boat Basin in New York City.

Tickets are $50 for adults and $35 for Clearwater members. Contact Catherine Stankowski at 845 265-8080, ext. 7107, to make your reservation. Tickets may also be purchased on the Clearwater website at http://www.clearwater.org/come-sailing/public-sail-schedule. Please note: this sail is not recommended for younger children.
