Sail aboard the A.J. Meerwald

What Is It: Two-and-a-half-hour public sails aboard Bayshore Discovery Project's oyster schooner A. J. Meerwald will be held today and Wednesday out of the Utsch's Marina in Cape May.

What To Expect: The A.J. Meerwald was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1995. On Earth Day in 1998, the A. J. Meerwald was designated the state's official tall ship by then Gov. Christie Whitman. Launched in 1928, the A. J. Meerwald was one of hundreds of schooners built along southern New Jersey's Delaware Bayshore before the decline of the shipbuilding industry that coincided with the Great Depression.

Event Info: The marine critters trawl sail will be held 1:30 to 4 p.m. today, and the evening sail takes place 5 to 7:30 tonight. The cost is $35 to $40 for adults and $15 to $20 for children. Call 856-785-2060.
