“Navy Pier is truly the People’s Pier. By providing an opportunity for Chicago’s youth organizations to learn about Chicago’s maritime heritage, as they engage and assist with the basics of sailing, is an exciting element of bringing our community together,” said Navy Pier Vice President of Marketing and Communications Amanda Willard. “We thank Chicago's Official Tall Ship Ambassador Windy for making this a reality."
