Before Detroit was a glimmer in the imagination of European explorers minds, the river flowed along banks rich in history. Later with its new name, the Detroit River witnessed the fierce battles of the Ottawa and the British. It saw Ransom Eli Olds’ factory burn in 1901, generations board four-story boats destined for Boblo Island, and the skyline of Detroit rise, fall, and rise again. It’s hosted dignitaries, visionaries, rockstars, military fleets, and millions of families over the centuries. Hosting everything from prohibition smuggling to the pleasure yachts of industrial titans, the Detroit River is an irreplaceable part of the city’s history. The Detroit History Club is honored to invite you to join us for a legendary evening on board the eighty-five-foot long tall ship, The Appledore IV. With a seventy-six foot mast and over 3,500 square feet of sails, The Appledore IV has majestically sailed the Great Lakes for nearly twenty years. On board, you’ll be greeted by the Captain and crew of this beautiful sailing vessel, along with your history guide. We will depart from the Port of Detroit and sail up the river past the Ambassador Bridge as your guide shares the stories of the city's skyscrapers, the wars for control of the river, and the secret hiding spots of mischief makers. Together with the crew you’ll raise the mainsail, cut through the waves, and learn the history of tall ships on Michigan waters. As the sun sets over Detroit we will glide past Belle Isle state park to see the shining beacon of the Livingstone Lighthouse. After a few turning maneuvers on Lake Saint Clair, you’ll sail back to port with a set of once in a lifetime memories.
