Recently, I was invited to take a sailing cruise along the New York Harbor, courtesy of Classic Harbor Line. I ventured on the brand’s Sunset Sail aboard The Schooner America 2.0, which is a gorgeous 105-foot, 1800s-style vessel. It’s a 2 hour adventure that leaves from Chelsea Piers with spectacular views of New York’s sunset and areas such as Downtown Manhattan, One World Trade Center, Governor’s Island, and the Statue of Liberty. Members of the staff on the sailing cruise are full of energy and quite knowledgeable about Manhattan’s history. It was incredible to watch them lift up the sails once we were on course, as it looked like an intense endeavor! They also acted as bartenders throughout the sailing cruise serving wine, champagne, beer, and soda.
During the journey, we started to feel some rain coming down, but it wasn’t a problem because the staff came fully prepared with ponchos for all of the guests on board. The light rain just added to the adventure and made it more memorable. I definitely had a great time and would go on the sailing cruise again!
