On September 21st the crew of the Apollonia will be hosting a FREE community gathering at the Basilica in Hudson, NY. We'll be presenting our vision for how the Apollonia will bring about positive change to the Hudson River, and reaching out to our community, as well as potential partners. Food generously provided by Little Deb's! Please come and share you ideas and learn about ours!
Join the crew for an evening of delicious food, conversation, and demonstration as we work together to bring Sail Freight back to the Hudson River. Agger fish Corp. and Achilles Heel team up to host an event to help fund the construction of the sailing rig for the Schooner Apollonia, the region's largest carbon neutral merchant vessel. It's the last bit of restoration to go before our launch! Let's celebrate!
The Hudson river is the original highway of our region. The towns and cities along the river have waterfronts that were designed as public marketplaces to ship and receive goods. There was a time when hundreds of sail boats moved everything from food to people to building materials up and down the Hudson. Honoring this tradition and responding to modern environmental challenges a new sail freight movement is being born. Join the crew of the Schooner Apollonia for a presentation about their work to bring this elegant carbon neutral mode of transportation back to our region.
