Set Your Sails, With Chicago Skyline Views
by Tommy Ford
Setting Sail Aboard the Tall Ship Windy
A sail is great fun for young and old. You may be asked to help raise a sail or steer the ship. If you're the more sedate sort there's plenty of opportunity to simply sit and enjoy the wind in your hair while the city skyline glides by in the distance.
The captain and crew may even entertain you with a rousing song or two. Windy offers a number of educational programs related to the history and ecology of the great lakes. Refreshments are sold on board and there are modern restrooms. So spend some time enjoying the activities available at Navy Pier then unwind with a sail on the Tall Ship Windy.
We would like to thank the staff of the Tall Ship Windy for assisting with our feature.
