Trans New York Harbor PRIDE Sails (for the Hetrick Martin Institute)
June 1 | 10:30 am - 12:30 pm
An event every week that begins at 10:30am on Saturday, repeating until June 29, 2019
For the benefit of transgender, non-binary and gender non-conforming youth support programs of the Hetrick-Martin Institute, Classic Harbor Line hosts a series of five weekend benefit sails throughout the duration of the World Pride Festival in New York City. 100% of net ticket sales goes to the Hetrick-Martin Institute.
The benefit sails are Saturdays: June 1, 8, 15, 22 & 29, from 10:30 A.M. – 12:30 P.M. aboard either the schooner Adirondack or the schooner America 2.0.
Each sail will include a standard bar and mimosas as well as a triumphant flying of their nearly 400 square foot spinnaker cloth Pride Flag. The flag will be hoisted to the aft-leaded edge of their mainsail as they glide from Chelsea Piers, south on the Hudson River to the Statue of Liberty and back. This Pride Flag is nearly half the size of schooner Adirondack’s mainsail and will certainly prove to be an epic and awe-inspiring experience for all those who see it.
