Sailing on Clearwater

The Sloop Clearwater is a replica of a commercial fishing vessel common to the Hudson River in the mid 19th century. Launched in 1969 by Pete Seeger, a bunch of folk singers, history buffs, and environmental activists, it sails the Hudson to promote clean water and environmental stewardship. (Paul Mozell)
From the archives — In the 1970’s I was a volunteer deckhand, folksinger, and event organizer on sloop Clearwater. This photograph was made during one of many short sails on the Hudson River and New York Harbor. Here, three crew members tighten up the jib in a stiff breeze. The 106 foot long Clearwater can still be seen sailing its home waters from April to November of each year. This photograph is available as a custom fine art print and as a licensed stock image for commercial use. Click the image to see an enlarged view.
