Exclusive Evening and Sail Aboard the Famed AMISTAD with Capital Yacht Club Reception


For five days, the famed Amistad will be in our Nation's Capitol - and BPC and TTD are inviting you and your fellow young professionals for a rare opportunity to not only tour this vessel, but for a special exclusive sail as well!  

La Amistad  was an integral part of the Amistad Incident of 1839, the first civil rights case heard by the US Supreme Court.  The Port Visit to DC is commemorating the 1808 signing of the United States Law abolishing the African slave trade.  

Begin the evening with a special reception at the Capitol Yacht Club(6:30 -8:00pm). Hors d’oeuvres provided plus discount cash bar for drinks.

8:00 PM SHARP: Following the reception, board the Amistad for an incredible 90 minute Potomac tour where you can view Washington's historic monuments illuminated by moonlight.
