After 38 years of serving the public providing free sailing on the Hudson River to thousands of people from all over the world, the Sloop Woody Guthrie will undergo a complete restoration. Please help support the mission that for so many of you has been a wonderful tradition.

The Beacon Sloop Club's pride & joy is the "WOODY GUTHRIE" , a wooden replica of a Hudson River Ferry Sloop. These boats, styled after Dutch designs, plied the Hudson throughout the 18th & 19th centuries.

Launched in 1978, her purpose is to promote the beauty and wonder of the Hudson River by offering free sails to the public and sail training to volunteers. Only by experiencing the power, serenity and sheer glory of this American treasure will we as a people be inspired to cherish and protect it, and thereby ourselves.
