Port Visits

Upcoming Port Visits

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

In 2017, Appledore IV will visit the Detroit Port Authority, Port Austin State Dock, East Tawas State Dock, and Toledo Maritime Academy.

Appledore V begins the 2017 season with a multi-week stint in East Tawas for the first-ever Heritage Coast Sail Days hosted by Heritage Coast Sailing & Rowing in partnership with BaySail.

After Heritage Coast Sail Days, Appledore V will depart on a journey to participate in the Great Lakes Flotilla celebrating the 150th Anniversary of the Canadian Confederation. Ships from around the world will participate in port events in Lake Ontario and the Saint Lawrence Seaway, leading up to a spectacle of tall ships at Rendez-vous Quebec 2017.

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.
