Ceres is preparing to launch again for her second season delivering Vermont goods on Lake Champlain and the Hudson.
We are looking forward to heading down the river again in June, and the highlight of the second voyage will be the Clearwater Festival, June 21 & 22 in Croton-on-Hudson, NY.  Also known as Clearwater's Great Hudson River Revival, it's a celebration of the river we share, environmental activism, music, sailing, and especially this year, of the legendary Pete Seeger.  Will you join us?
Dine Aboard at the Falls
Last year, we hosted dinner on Ceres for one level of Kickstarter donors.  The combination of fresh food from our cargo, evening light on the falls, and the setting of a handmade sailing barge made these gatherings magical.  To raise funds for 2014 operation costs and to celebrate a new year of VSFP, we're returning to host dinner at the falls.  You're invited!
Friday, May 30, 2014
7pm, $150 for two 

The evening includes a tour of Ceres, conversation with project director Erik Andrus, drinks, and a meal prepared with local ingredients from our participating farmers and producers.
Please reply to Willowell with your reservation.  This will be an intimate gathering of 8 guests.  Based on response, we plan to host more dinners throughout the coming season.  Please contact us if you would be interested in attending a future dinner aboard!
We can't wait to get sailing!
