The Beacon Sloop Club, Inc. is an all-volunteer environmental and sailing non-profit dedicated to cleaning up the Hudson River. The club maintains a wooden replica of a Hudson River Ferry Sloop called the Woody Guthrie. Launched in 1978, her purpose is to promote the beauty and wonder of the Hudson River by offering free sails to the public, provided by volunteer crews. The sloop club also upholds infrastructure of the Beacon Harbor, including moorings and docks. The Woody Guthrie is currently going through a major restoration, a project for which the club is still raising funds. We hold three festivals a year for fundraising and community outreach: the Strawberry Festival in June, Corn Festival in August and the Pumpkin Festival in October. Additionally the Sloop Club holds a monthly environmental lecture series from January through May of each year, at least one annual riverfront cleanup, a holiday sing, fundraisers for the Beacon Food Pantry, the sloop Woody Guthrie, work parties for Woody and Harbor maintenance, and other activities.
Monthly meetings are held on the first Friday of every month and include a pot luck dinner and circle of song. The pot dinner starts at 6:30pm followed by the meeting at 7:30 and a circle of song at 9. The building is unique as it has a tree growing through the roof and a custom designed marine mosaic. All are welcome.
