Come Sailing!

To reserve a sail on the Woody please call Susan Berliner at 845-527-8671

After 40 years of serving the public providing free sailing on the Hudson river to thousands of people from all over the world and the completion of a 3 year restoration project in 2017, Covid-19 has forced us to temporarily suspend public sails on the Sloop Woody Guthrie. We intend to resume as soon as we can do it safely.

Please help support the mission that for so many of you has been a wonderful tradition.

Traditionally there is a different Captain and crew for each weekday night the Woody sails. If you want to become a crew member, schedule a ride on the Woody and speak to the Captain while on board. You don't need to have any sailing experience, just come down and have some fun learning about the sloop, sailing and enjoying the beautiful Hudson River.
