For a Pre-July 4 visit to view New York Harbor, I chose a full moon late evening cruise aboard the elegant Shearwater Classic Schooner. The Shearwater was built in Maine and launched in 1929. It's extremely stable and comfortable, and the crew keeps the sails high to catch wind on breezy nights. Tonight's weather and timing were perfect for a pre-sail dinner at PJ Clarke's, from which I was greeted by quacking ducks and a cold Chardonnay.

The World Financial Center is on its way to near completion, and the interior lights were magnificent to behold. The entire North Cove Marina, where Shearwater is docked, is illuminated for strolling, dining, and taking photos. On this cloudy, but full moon night, with a rapid current and breeze, the Captain steered the schooner, while the Shearwater crew managed the hoisting and lowering of sails masterfully.

It was a gorgeous sail, accompanied by wine of choice. The crew is warm and helpful, and the mood is relaxed and restful. This is a ninety-minute evening excursion that feels like a mini-vacation. Shearwater also takes guests on Sunset, Happy Hour, Sunday Brunch, and Daytime tours. For your special events, you can order picnics and catered parties through the friendly Shearwater staff, and they also take requests for longer, private sails and overnight excursions. Call Shearwater at 212.619.0907, and tell them you saw them on RobertaOnTheArts.com.
