Schooner Aria

As part of the 2016 StarFest activities, the Minuteman Section will offer a 2½ hour nautical cruise on the schooner Argia on both Thursday and Friday (August 4 & 5).  The Argia will sail for 2½ hours in the calm and protected waters of the Mystic River and Fisher's Island Sound leaving the pier at 10:20 AM. Meet in the parking lot at 9:00 a.m. near the Winter Garage to caravan to the Mystic Seaport. Carpooling is encouraged because there is limited parking at the pier.


Let the sound of the water and the scent of salt air take you away as we cruise among the numerous scenic islands and lighthouses.  We will depart from Mohegan Sun at 9:30 AM and will convoy to the Mystic seaport for a short drive.  The boat holds only 49 people so register early as this has been a very popular event in the past. After the sail, you may wish remain and visit the quaint seafaring village of Mystic Connecticut.


Space limited to 49.
