Fleet Week 2012 Parade of Sail

We’re just two days away from the start of Fleet Week 2012 here in New York City.  The first event of the week is known as the parade of sail, which is pretty much what you would expect it to be; a parade on the Hudson River.  Tall Ships and Warships will glide in from the south and up the Hudson River beginning at 8 a.m., but that may be a little deceiving.  According to the Fleet Week website, the first ships won’t reach lower Manhattan (World Trade Center) until 9:27.  Here is the total schedule for the Parade of Sail Wednesday morning:

   Tall Ships

  • 8:11 am                Verrazano-Narrows Bridge
  • 9:18 am                Statue of Liberty Ellis Island
  • 9:27 am                World Trade Center

Warships

  • 10:39 am             Verrazano-Narrows Bridge
  • 11:22 am             Statue of Liberty Ellis Island
  • 11:28am              World Trade Center
  • 12:00 pm             Tall Ships and Warships pass in review in the vicinity of Intrepid Pier 86

Make sure you plan accordingly.  No need to find a spot along the Husdon an hour and a half before the first ship passes by, right?  Follow the link for a full schedule of Fleet Week 2012 events.  Don’t forget, all uniformed military ride our buses for FREE during Fleet Week, so stop on by!
