Sold Out: Brilliant Day Sail
September 10, 2017
Come learn to sail a 61-foot schooner while cruising local waters. You’ll become part of the crew as you raise sails, haul on lines, steer, and learn traditional seamanship. This unique hands-on, full-participation sailing experience aboard a classic yacht is a fun-filled activity for beginners and old salts alike.
In honor of Brilliant’s 85th birthday, festive refreshments and a full lunch will be provided. Share stories with the crew and hear about some of Brilliant’s adventures throughout the years as both a racing and educational vessel. Bring a friend, family members, or just yourself – new friendships are sure to be forged along the way.
Participants will board at 9 a.m. and disembark by 4 p.m. at Mystic Seaport.
