The sun shone brightly in Portsmouth, NH as the sails of the new gundalow called PISCATAQUA filled with wind and we were off for a morning sail up the river. There are morning, afternoon and evening sails up and down the Piscataqua river leaving from Prescott Park. Public sails are available from Thursday through Monday. Sunset sails are from 6:00 until 8:00 at this time of year. They will be earlier as we move toward autumn. On Thursday evenings there are musical groups and educational speakers. A schedule is available on the Gundalow Company website.
You may have seen the Piscataqua being built last year at Strawbery Banke, Portsmouth NH by ship builders and volunteers as part of the Gundalow Company’s project of creating a ship like those used as the tractor-trailers of the historic seacoast waterways. As you travel up or down the river, you will hear about the maritime history of our region and the need to preserve the estuaries that flow into the ocean.
What a great closing gift for clients new to our area. See website for membership levels and cruise costs.
