Port Visits

Upcoming Port Visits

Each year, the Appledores make a limited number of special visits to waterfront celebrations and maritime events.

In 2018, Appledore IV will visit the Detroit Port Authority, Port Austin State Dock, and the Festival of Sail in Sandusky, Ohio.

Appledore V begins the 2018 season with a multi-week stint in East Tawas for the second annual Heritage Coast Sail Days hosted by Heritage Coast Sailing & Rowing in partnership with BaySail, the East Tawas Business Association, and the Tawas Area Chamber of Commerce.

Later in the season, Appledore V will make an appearance at the annual Rogers City Nautical Festival and offer day sails for visitors. Tickets and more information is available at www.nauticalfestival.org.

Appledore V



Just wanted to drop a line and let you know the ‘sail away’ on Sunday evening was delightful! We were on the Appledore IV and the crew was wonderful – it was a very pleasant evening! Thanks again.

Great learning experience as usual. All volunteers were outstanding and students loved them. They were also very knowledgeable.
