About the Event
Each year, Ferry Sloops proudly participates in the Hudson River Valley Ramble by offering free sails on the Hudson River. Join us on Saturday, September 2 at Shattemuc 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 departure times for the free sail trips aboard Ferry Sloops' sloop-rigged catboat, "Whimbrel", or the 2 other participating sailboats are at 10am, 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 yellow Ferry Sloops tent beginning at 9:30am 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. There is NO RAIN DATE.
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 (Westerly Road). DO NOT park in the lots for Boathouse Restaurant or Shattemuc Yacht Club. Get Directions
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.
