Try to envision it: The day is hot. Your cup is filled to the brim with champagne. The sparkling skyline is in your face while the rhythm of live jazz cools your ears. You two can even bring the pooch. Manhattan by Sail wants to put it all together gratis for a pair of lucky offManhattan readers. New York’s only Tall Ship, Clipper City is a replica of the lumber schooners that frequented Manhattan centuries ago, and at 158 feet long it is one of the largest commercial sailing boats in the nation.
The winner will receive two passes to a Wednesday jazz sail, which departs at 9:30p.m. in July, August and September. The passes can be used through the end of the 2012 season and include complimentary beer, wine or champagne aboard the ship. Clipper City departs from Pier 17 at South Street Seaport.
To enter, become a fan of offManhattan’s Facebook page and share a car-free getaway that you’ve enjoyed from NYC. The deadline is Thursday, July 21 at 11:59pm EST – our favorite entry will be chosen and announced the next day!
