Discovering Amistad and New London Maritime Society invite the public to a sail aboard the historic Amistad at Amistad Pier, New London’s Waterfront Park.
While enjoying a 2-1/2 hour sail, you will learn the history of New London’s role in the capture, and ultimate release, of the Mende people of Sierra Leone and their long-fought struggle for freedom.
Sails will take place Saturdays and Sundays from 12 to 3 p.m. throughout the month of May.
Cost for the sail is $35 per person.
All proceeds go to support New London Maritime Society, the Custom House Maritime Museum and Discovering Amistad.
Note: Limit is 40 people per sail for guests age 7 and older.
