Whif in Havana

Sailing under full sail

Friendship Sloop Wenonah
Sail a New England Classic

Whether you prefer sailing for 90 minutes, 2 hours, half the day or a full day, Friendship Sloop Wenonah is perfect for your private sailing party because every charter is a private charter.

See the local area’s coast, rich in maritime history, the way seafarers did over a century ago on a classic, traditionally rigged Friendship sloop departing daily from Pickering Wharf Marina in downtown Salem. Whether it be for a family outing, romantic getaway, or a fun day with good friends, join us for a classic New England sailing experience.

Schooner When And If
The historic ship built for General George Patton

General George Patton said: “When the war is over, and If I live through it, Bea and I are going to sail around the world.” This magnificent vessel is the peacetime dream of an American war icon, and she was launched with her name full of hope and ambition precluding a destiny as yet unfulfilled.

The fame of this ship arises from her historical provenance and her heartwarming beauty: the meeting of minds between a great military figure and America’s premier naval architect of the time.

Come and be part of her present story! Help raise sail, take a turn at the helm or simply relax and enjoy the gorgeous New England scenery as we harness the fresh summer breezes of Salem Sound and enjoy a trip out on the water.

Sailing daily out of Pickering Wharf and Salem Ferry Dock.
