NMHA Members & Friends are Invited to Sail on the Tall Ship AJ Meerwald, departing at 3:00pm from Atlantic Highlands

New Jersey’s official Tall Ship, the oyster schooner AJ Meerwald, will be in Atlantic Highlands harbor for a short stay this summer, and NMHA has chartered her for an exclusive afternoon cruise on Sunday, July 21st, boarding at 2:45PM for a two hour cruise about Sandy Hook Bay and into Raritan Bay (wind willing!). Click on 'Register' on the left side of your screen to reserve your placeThe ticket price includes light refreshments.

Passengers will be encouraged to assist the crew in raising sail.  Sea shanties may be sung by the crew and you will be encouraged to join in!

In 1928 the Meerwald family of South Dennis commissioned Charles H Stowman & Sons shipyard to build the AJ Meerwald.  She is a two-masted gaff rigged oyster dredge, is 85ft on deck and 115ft overall, with an 22ft beam, and draws 6ft, and her sail rig height is 68ft. Her home port is Bivalve in South Jersey and is well worth a visit- excellent museum and dockside dining on oysters and other choices. More at BayshoreCenter.Org
