It was a clear, balmy evening in September, a perfect time for a Shearwater Sunset Cruise, on board this 82' sailing yacht built in 1929. I enjoyed a generous glass of white wine, as I sat near Captain Dave, to watch the Captain and Mark navigate tonight's busy New York Harbor. Once the sails were hoisted, we glided quietly by the new, Lower Manhattan skyline, with One World Trade Center almost complete and very dramatic. We soon sailed by Ellis Island, the Statue of Liberty, Staten Island Ferry, small cruise boats, the Clipper City tall ship, tiny sailboats, and green buoys.

The Sunset Cruise allows the passenger to experience the sparkling, silver-blue waters, as they shift reflected light from setting sun to approaching moonlight. It was a cloudy eve, but the shades of pink around Ellis Island and tall, proud Lady Liberty, recently re-opened for visitors, were awesome views. The Shearwater guests visibly unwound throughout the evening.

Call the Shearwater office at 212.619.0907, and reserve space for you and your friends on their Daytime, Sunset, City Lights, Wine Tasting, or Champagne Brunch Sails. Tell them you saw them on RobertaOnTheArts.com!
