JULY 25th 2024 | PIER 81

What to Wear

Attire: Yacht Casual

Summer weather can change in a minute. Rain or Shine. That’s why the captain recommends sunglasses, shawls, light jackets, and rubber sole shoes! He suggests: Flat, rubber-sole/non-slip textured shoes (men & women), are strongly recommended as we cannot predict the condition of the gangway and outside top deck.
