The Travels of Tug 44

Sloop Clearwater

Launched in 1969, the Sloop Clearwater was created to raise public awareness of environmental issues in the Hudson River and other rivers. It is owned by a non-profit environmental organization called Hudson River Sloop Clearwater, and serves as the centerpiece for their education programs. The organization, based in Poughkeepsie, NY, was founded by Pete Seeger.

Clearwater turns north, away from the wind, and lets her sails out a bit.
