Kick Off the Summer with the S/V Denis Sullivan

Join us to celebrate Discovery World’s tall ship, the S/V (Sailing Vessel) Denis Sullivan, and the start of the 2018 sailing season! Everyone is invited to participate in FREE Deck Tours and learn about maritime history and our freshwater future alongside the crew of Wisconsin’s Official Flagship.

This entire day will be dedicated to kicking off the sailing season for the ship! She will be docked on Discovery World’s South Dock, in full view of the freeway and Lincoln Memorial Drive, and we will offer free deck tours from 10a-4p. Our crew and volunteers will be staffing a variety of maritime activity “stations”, teaching the public about topics such as flag decoding, weather and wave reading, navigation, knot tying and more! We will be selling tickets for the entire seasons sails including Sunset Brew Sails, family day sails, lazy day sails and more! Stop down to welcome back the ship, meet the crew, and hear some fun maritime music from local musicians.
