Sailing away with IFDA on the Willy Wall July 24th

The Honorable William Wall, affectionately called the “Willy Wall,” is Manhattan Yacht Club’s floating clubhouse. This Clubhouse is anchored in New York Harbor just north of Ellis Island and serves as a spectator platform for guests to watch sailing races, and enjoy the views.

How to get there: Ferry, Path and walk or drive and park.
Ferry Tickets sell out quickly so plan ahead. You may bring your own food but drinks must be purchased from the bar at Willy Wall.
