Clearwater Will Return July 31

Relaunch ceremony at Cold Spring

After an $800,000 hull restoration and a short delay awaiting a U.S. Coast Guard inspection that scuttled plans for an Independence Day relaunch, the sloop Clearwater has begun her sailing season on the Hudson River. To celebrate, Clearwater will host a ceremony at 6 p.m. on Sunday, July 31, at the pier at the foot of Main Street in Cold Spring.

Following the ceremony, the sloop will depart at 7 p.m. for a public sail, which has sold out. (A 3 p.m. sail is also sold out.) Fundraising continues for the hull project, with about $70,000 remaining.
