Sip and Sail hosted by Vin Social

Join us on September 13th for a special evening aboard the stunning Ventura. We have chartered the ship and its crew for a one of a kind wine tasting event on the high seas (aka the Hudson River) to savor the last precious days of summer with incredible wine and views of the city skyline at sunset.  Grab a glass of bubbly as you board and explore the boat which will immediately transport you straight to the 1920s.  The crew will amuse you with the  Ventura's fascinating history including ties to F. Scott Fitzgerald and The Great Gatsby.  Once under way with sails up, we will begin an informal tasting of 5 wines, hand picked by our very own Certified Sommelier.  Light fare will be served as well as an optional beer selection.

Great Gatsby Sail

Come sailing aboard the official Great Gatsby yacht of NY Harbor! The second annual Great Gatsby Cocktail Party aboard Sailing Yacht Ventura will be one you won't want to miss. Last year, everyone embraced the opportunity to dress up in their finest 1920s outfits and sail away on a yacht built in 1919. Join us this year for cocktails, hors d'oeuvres, refreshing late-summer sailing, and an after-party at a nearby cocktail lounge. 

While aboard, remember to ask about Ventura and her Great Gatsby history!

TICKETS AVAILABLE HERE

Suggested Attire

Ladies, think flappers and 1920s. Last year we had a mix of ladies wearing flapper outfits and some wearing cocktail dresses. Bring a light jacket as an extra layer.

Gents, suit and tie. 

Need some style guidance? Check out some images from the recent Great Gatsby movie!

Sailing/Party Details

The boat leaves the dock at 10pm and returns at midnight. We will begin boarding at 9:45pm, so make sure you arrive early! 

Hot Toddies and light hors d'oeuvers will be served during the sail and are included in the ticket price. We also have a cash bar available with beer, wine, and soft drinks. Feel free to bring your own bottle of wine, beers, and snacks as well!

Will It Get Chilly?

September nights can be warm like Summer nights or a bit chilly like Fall nights. Plan on bringing a couple layers to stay warm. We also have plenty of warm blankets aboard to pass around. The cabins below are very cozy, warm, and spacious. Plus, we will have Hot Toddies and some warm hors d'oeuvers to keep you warm.

Starry Night Sail to Midnight

Starry Night Sail to Midnight

TICKETS HERE

First, the sailing details… Cruise is this Friday night, July 18.  It replaces our regular Friday Sunset Sail, which has been sold out for a private party.  And not wanting to leave our regulars high and dry, so to speak, we decided to have some fun and offer something way, way different.

Just like our regular Friday sunset sails, you are welcome to bring along your own favorite wines, ales (no hard alcohol permitted) and any snacks you wish.  We will also put up our self-serve, keep track of your own tab, honor bar.  (A highlight: Lagunitas beers on ice!)  Ticket pricing is the same low price, and as always, tickets are available via www.smarttix.com.  (FYI one of the reasons we like using Smarttix so much is that the owner and founder is a sailor and old acquaintance of Captain Pat.  Loyalty runs deep on the good ship Ventura!)

Now what about this strange, ghostly, Caribbean legend?  OK, first the facts.  He’s dead.  So we’ve conjured up his closest living likeness, one of our own legendary crew, Jake Deter.    And since Jake is a film student (and noir fan) here in NY, the natural logic is he’d somehow be a perfect Pablo Escobar.  The make up department on the Ventura (i.e. the engine room) yielded a roll of old vinyl electrical tape.   Makes a damn fine resemblance to Pablos famous facial hair on Jakes baby face.  Kinda sorta.  Maybe.  But hell, it’s going to be dark out.

 

Why Pablo Escobar ?  What has that to do with your spiritual, liquid benefit aboard? Turns out another Ventura client runs a very hip club in Aspen, Colorado, named Escobar.  Said same client also produces a line of high quality vodka, appropriately called Escobar (silver).  It will be coming to the NY market soon.  So for the sake of promotion and just plain old hokey fun, Jake will be Pablo for the night.  His main mission will be to pour to you, dear shipmates, a round or two of this fine vodka as we sail past the Statue of Liberty, en route home to North Cove.  Free, gratis, without charge and no money down.  And in costume.

 

So that’s the scoop.  And FYI King Neptune is not entirely flipping over in his watery grave.  That’s because rum may be a sacred sea tradition, free booze trumps all!

And to your own, ever-lasting personal party fame, when all hands are served out their ration of grog, there will be our official Ventura toast!  Ye olde sea dawgs will truly love that one too, as does our patron saint Neptune.  You gotta be aboard to learn the toast!

Gay Pride Fireworks Sail

Literally sail off into the sunset, then watch an explosive display of fireworks, seen from the decks of this classic sailing yacht!

This is a very special sail,with byo picnic dinners and favorite wines welcomed. Come aboard for "front row" viewing of the Gay Pride fireworks from the water!

Click here for tickets.

First part of this really great cruise literally starts with a sunset departure from the glamorous World Financial Center's North Cove marina. We will raise sail (!!) and, wind and weather permit, cross the main shipping channel and ferry lanes, catching the summer breezes coming off the ocean. We will be in great position to view the blazing city lights of Manhattan as we work up to position Ventura as close as possible to the barges launching the fireworks! 

A close pass by the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island is guaranteed! We will be so close, you will be able to observe the firey trails of the rockets as they soar upward, prior to exploding in air!

Does this sound like the Star Spangled Banner, or what?

Your picnic dinners and snacks are very welcome aboard. Please remember, your favorite wines and beers are welcome (never a corkage fee or any of that b.s. aboard the good ship Ventura) and that no hard liquor is permitted to be brought aboard. If you do not want to schlepp a lot of weight, we have a way cool self-serve, keep track of your own tab honor bar! Great selection of craft beers, ales, wines and champagne are stocked.

Ticket sales are limited on this cruise, assuring ample room aboard for seating and spreading out your picnic blankets and goodies on Ventura's beautifully varnished (and original from 1919!) teak decks.

In a word, awesome cruise. OK, that was two words.

We look forward to having you aboard -- Capt Pat and crew.

Tickets are non-refundable and the vessel sails rain or shine. In case of cancellation due to really nasty weather conditions and the Captain will cancel the sail and all ticket holders are issued a full credit valid on any other sail aboard Ventura through our 2014 season.
