Exactly 90 days from today (April 26, 2013), the 158′ vessel begins season 2013.  Clipper City is one of two vessels operated by Manhattan by Sail, the other being Shearwater.  Click here for more info on Clipper City, a 1984 replica of a Manitowoc lumber schooner  that operated on Lake Michigan between 1854 and 1890 and capable of sailing 115 miles in less than 8 hours.

Manhattan by Sail is owned by Tom Berton, who first sailed on Petrel, a now-gone pioneer of sixth boro public sail operated by Nick Van Nes.
