CLAYTON, New York (June 16, 2014) – The Antique Boat Museum (ABM), North America’s premier freshwater nautical museum based in Clayton, New York, announced today its free summer sailing and rowing opportunities for 2014.
Beginning on Tuesday, June 24, the ABM will kick-off its popular Tuesday Night Sailing & Rowing program. This free weekly event takes place June 24 through August 12 and begins each week at 5:30 p.m.
This program is open to the public and to those of all ages. No sailing experience is required. The ABM staff will be on hand to assist those in need of coaching or desire an experienced sailing partner.

Also, the ABM will host a wide-range of sailing courses throughout the summer including adult, junior, teen, and advanced courses. Courses run throughout July and August.
