Ferry Sloops, Inc. is a non-profit, environmental sailing organization that inspires people to appreciate and protect one of our country's greatest resources, the magnificent Hudson River.
Our membership is composed of a diverse group of volunteers each giving in their own way, joined together by our respect for one another and our love of the Hudson River. We are dedicated to bringing people to the Hudson to sail the waters, learn the lore and make a commitment to keep its water cleaner and safer as well as preserving the natural beauty of its shores.
A spin-off of the Hudson River Sloop Clearwater, Inc., Ferry Sloops Inc. was founded in 1979 and is committed to share the beauty of the Hudson River.
The goal of Ferry Sloops continues to be to encourage people to appreciate and preserve our local waterways through sail training, hands-on crewing, learning about the history of the river and its environment. Throughout the year, we support various events directly related to the river, its environment and its history. Apart from being on the water, we have social activities, river-related land activities and fundraising. We offer sail training to our active members and take small groups for sails on the Hudson.
Ferry Sloops is fully supported by the work of volunteers and by financial donations.
