Drinks on the Pilot sailboat
Hey everyone! This week we will be having drinks at this awesome sailboat named Pilot. It has a bar and a kitchen. It is docked throughout the summer and early Fall on the north side of Pier 6 in Brooklyn Bridge Park. To find it just walk along the north side of Pier 6 until you see a sail boat with a bar. The photo that you can see on the mobile and desktop websites but not the app is one I took this past Tuesday when about 30 of us were there. Come anytime after 7:45p to meet us there. I am posting this at the unorthodox time of 7:45p because I play volleyball on the courts next to the boat until 7:45 the day of the event. So I won't be able to get to the boat until my game is over. If you want to come earlier please feel free to do so and let people know in the comments section if anyone wants to meet earlier for drinks. The boat in incredibly beautiful and the view is spectacular. If weather affects this event, then I will move the event to a bar nearby. I will post any changes here on the comments section. Hopefully though we call all have drinks at Pilot. Here is the history of this beautiful boat:

What we're about

Welcome to the New York Backpackers!

We're a club of outdoor enthusiasts who come together for day hikes, weekend backpacking trips, and longer excursions. We love all outdoor sports such as rock climbing, ice climbing, kayaking, alpine, nordic, or telemark skiing, snowboarding and biking.

Our Club provides all kinds of adventures year round. Please check out our past events and sign up future events.


How do I get a ride or offer rides?

Post on the comments section of the event that you are going to that you need or that you have space in your car. Please wait until at least two weeks before the event to ask for a ride. We try to carpool as much as we can because a lot of people don't have a car and it's more environmentally friendly. Some events have spreadsheets with the rides. Check each event description for the details.
