Full Moon Sailing


Every sail on The Western Union is special, but the full moon sails are of another world. Out of the harbor and under way sails full of the evening air, a feeling of tranquility takes over. As we leave Key West behind the noise and merriment of Duval Street disappears and one feels transported back in time to when things were simpler. Looking up in the rigging and feeling the gentle motion of the sea, the imagination starts to wander and leads to contemplation of the hands that worked and lived on this once humble but now mighty ship. Join us for a full moon celebration you shall never forget.
