NEITH 1907 Herreshoff sloop

The sailing vessel Neith a 1907 Herreshoff sloop newly restored by Taylor & Snediker Woodworking and looked after by our Commodore Captain “T” sits tied up and awaiting your visit.

For those who have never been to the woodenboat show there are dozens of fine wooden yachts to fawn over as well as 100’s of woodcraft and nautical vendors all in one place. And all the activities that Historic Mystic Seaport usually has to offer.

Don’t miss out on sailing one of the classic cat boats or row out on the Mystic River in a dory. Could there be some impromptu match racing to the Mystic River Bridge? Maybe…

Gervais_live_oakSee what’s left of the Gervais Live Oak Tree. Any relation to a VT ice boater we know? You will have to ask him.

The event goes on all weekend, starting today.  T will be aboard or close by the Neith all weekend ready to give tours

 

See you there on Saturday.

NEIYA Secretary
