Fall Foliage Sail Aboard Adirondack III

Bon Foliage

A Leaf Tour. On a Goddamn Boat.

None Surveying the open sea on a cherrywood sailboat deck.

That’s for summer.

Appreciating the fall foliage with a chalice full of hot cider.

That’s for autumn.

An 82-foot schooner that brings those two things together.

That’s... fantastic.

That’s also the Fall Foliage Sail Aboard Adirondack III, your front-row seat to the multihued splendor of autumn (if front-row seats could sail Boston’s Harbor Islands and came with pumpkin ale). You’ve got until Columbus Day weekend to make it happen.

That Adirondack III: beautiful boat. It’s modeled after a 19th-century pilot schooner and powered entirely by sail (“sailboat” and all).

So on a forthcoming crispy New England day (say, tomorrow), you and a couple dozen other leaf enthusiasts will board her for a three-hour tour. You’ll take a seat on the deck. Your captain will hoist the sails and yell captain things. You’ll shove off from Boston Harbor and start passing red-, yellow- and orange-tinged islands with names like Spectacle and Castle.

Pumpkin ale will materialize on deck. So will a topside picnic with turkey-cranberry sandwiches and piping-hot cider. You’ll get the feeling that you’re doing this whole autumn thing pretty well.

Tweed accordingly.
