A wonderful Experience

OMG!  What an experience!  I have to say this was one of the best things I have done in NYC.  We went sailing on Fathers Day on the Wine Tasting Sailing and we had a blast.  There were five of us and each one of us loved it.  We had perfect weather, a great crew and great wine!  The two hour sailing flew by too fast.  We were sorry to see it end.  I would highly recommend Manhattan by Sail.  It's a must-do for all whether you are a local or a tourist.  Great fun!
