Its the largest peacetime gathering of boats in maritime history, OPSAIL 2000. It was the vision of President John F. Kennedy in 1961, meant to promote harmony among nations and teach sailors the old art of harnessing the wind.

President Clinton piped aboard the missile cruiser USS Hue City, opened the ceremonies with the international naval review, a tradition dating back more than one hundred years. As he passed by, he saluted each naval ship, domestic or foreign...an eleven mile trip down the Hudson and through history... that fittingly ended on the deck of the aricraft carrier John F. Kennedy.

But it was the throwbacks to the storied world of wood and canvas that stole the show., creating a kaliedascope of sails against a spectacular backdrop. Square-rigged vessels and gaff-riggers, sloops and schooners, under full sale to give the full effect of a romantic age gone by.
