Show your patriotism by bidding on 4 tickets to be on board the USS Constellation in Baltimore, MD  for the July 4th Deck Party! 

Great food and drink (all-inclusive), live music, cannon firing demonstrations, tours of USS Constellation, and the best view of one of the east coast’s premier fireworks displays.

  • In addition to the tickets, the winning bid will also receive an authentic piece of hull planking removed from USS Constellation during her 1996 restoration. 

Event takes place weather permitting.  Rain date is usually the following evening. 

More information can be found at: www.historicships.org/july4th.html

But wait! There’s more…

Appledore IV & V

Looking for the perfect venue for any group outing or party?    How about the deck of a tall ship?

 Come aboard and let us pamper your group of up to 40 people during a marvelous 3-hour sail in Bay City, MI.

 The Appledore schooners are owned and operated by BaySail, a private, non-profit organization. BaySail supports its Environmental Education and Youth Development programs through public sails, private charters, group tours, and port visits. 

Both ships are steel hulled Gaff rigged schooners of a type typical of those sailed on coastal waters and in the Great Lakes right up to the end of the age of sail. Schooners were the workhorses of their era providing the primary means of transportation for goods and passengers over long distances. 

Don’t miss this unique opportunity to host a party on board a tall ship, and support a good cause at the same time!

 You must use your certificate for the charter by October 31, 2011.  Catering not included.
