We are excited to invite you aboard the tall ship Amistad for sails and dockside visits at Mitchell Park Marina in Greenport, NY on Long Island. Through the generous support of the Village of Greenport, Friends of Mitchell Park have partnered with Discovering Amistad  to offer sails and dockside tours open to the public.

Saturday June 16    
Daytime Freedom Sail at 10 am     

Sunday June 17

While enjoying a 2-1/2 hour sail, learn the history of the capture, and ultimate release, of the Mende people of Sierra Leone and their long-fought struggle for freedom.

Dockside tours from 2 to 4 pm both days.
Dockside tours are complimentary.

For tickets visits www.friendsofmitchellpark.com

Sails can accommodate 40 guests age 7 and older. All guests are advised to arrive at least 15 minutes prior to scheduled departure. It is important to be prompt, because we don’t want to leave anyone behind at the dock or keep our guests waiting on our departure. 

What to bring – It gets cooler once we are out sailing, and weather can change quickly once we are out on the water. Please bring a hat for sun, sunscreen, a warm layer (fleece or sweater), a water-resistant shell or rain jacket for wind protection, and closed-toe shoes.
