Public sails on Christeen, a historic national landmark, allow groups of up to 24 people the opportunity to enjoy each other’s company, delight in a beautiful view, learn something new about the Bay, and leave their cares ashore. Sunset Sails, Harbor Tours, and Marine Discovery Sails, as well as private charters have delighted about 3,000 people every year. This summer the WFC will be adding three new exciting public cruises to the schedule. On Thursday nights from June 23rd through September 1st, there will be a Beer Tasting and Happy Hour sail aboard Christeen. What better way to start a night out this summer? This sail includes beer from the Oyster Bay Brewing Company and light hors d’oeuvres from Christina’s Epicure. With many local restaurants in walking distance from the WFC, this sail adds a fun twist to a summer night out in town. Wild Honey is a great place to have dinner on a Friday night. Fresh, flavorful food choices fill their menu. On select Fridays in June through October, the WFC is teaming up with Wild Honey to provide a pre-dinner sail with appetizers and drinks, followed by dinner at the restaurant down the block. Just because Christeen is from 1883, doesn’t mean she can’t be trendy. Brunch on the Bay is the third new public sail that will be offered this season, and who doesn’t love brunch? It’ll take place from June through September on certain Sundays. Some restaurants have outdoor seating, some restaurants even provide a view of the water, but no waterfront view can compare to this experience. Jack Halyards will provide a classic brunch buffet, tea, coffee, orange juice, and an open champagne bar while passengers are able to soak in the sunshine and breathe in the fresh air on the deck of Christeen. With six public sail formats offered from Bay Day in June through Oyster Festival in October, there are over seventy-five sails scheduled aboard Christeen. By offering more variety this season, we’re hoping to increase the number of people that are able to experience a sail on this beautiful historic landmark that luckily found a home at the WaterFront Center. Registration for all public sails is available on our website, thewaterfrontcenter.org.
