About the Event
Each year, Ferry Sloops proudly participates in the Hudson River Valley Ramble by offering free sails on the Hudson River during River Day. Join us on Saturday, September 9 at Croton Yacht Club.
The Hudson River Valley Ramble is an annual event series that celebrates the history, culture and natural resources of the Hudson River Valley National Heritage Area, as well as the amazing landscape, communities, and trails throughout the region.
Scheduled dates and times for the free sail trips aboard Ferry Sloops' gaff-rigged catboat, "Whimbrel" are listed below.
Saturday, September 9 (no rain date)
Sail trips depart from Croton Yacht Club at 11am, 12pm, 1pm, 2pm and 3pm.
Each sail will be approximately 45 minutes long. The free sails are on a “first come, first served” basis. No reservations will be accepted prior to the sail day. Guests can sign up at the Ferry Sloops table (under the big white tent) beginning at 10:00am for any of the day’s scheduled sail times.
The boat’s captain reserves the right to cancel any or all of the day’s sails if weather conditions make it unsafe for sailing.
Passenger restrictions: Must be at least 12 years old, under 18 years old must be accompanied by parent or adult guardian (no exceptions).
For safety and boating etiquette, we ask that guests aboard our boat wear boat shoes (docksiders or non-marking sandals) or light-colored soled sneakers only. Since it’s always cooler on the water, bring a light jacket or windbreaker and a hat. Also, don't forget the sunscreen.
Free parking is available on the street (Elliot Way) and in the Croton Landing parking lot.
Every September, "Ramblers" come not only from the Hudson Valley region and New York State, but from other regions of the country as well to discover the riches our Valley has to offer.
The 2023 Ramble will take place every day throughout the month of September.
