As the North Wind begins to resume passenger trips, there are several new regulations which have been established to ensure that we are following the latest State of New Jersey health regulations.
Prior to Boarding
Passengers will assemble on Freedom Pier by the North Wind in the social groups (ie families or couples who are in a common living unit).
A North Wind representative, wearing a mask, will check you in. You will be required to give your contact information (phone number/email) in the case that future contact tracing may be required.
The Captain will make a pre-boarding announcement while still on the pier, outlining the Covid-19 safety rules on board. These include:
1: Each passenger must have a face covering/mask to board the North Wind. These will be available for sale if required. While required to board, and greatly encouraged while on board, we will not be mandating mask compliance once seated. We will insist that when moving about on the North Wind that you have your mast properly in place.
2: Social groups should keep 6 feet separation from other social groups when walking down the ramp and boarding the North Wind.
3: There are 10 marked sitting areas each accommodating at least 2 people. The “Bull Pen” area will be reserved for social groups of 3 or 4.
4: Once on board, please proceed directly to one of the marked social group seating areas.
5: The North Wind will not be able to supply passengers with water or food. You are welcome to bring these aboard for your own use.
6: Going below decks will only be permitted one person at a time, and only to use the head (bathroom). Masks will be required at all times below decks.
7: After boarding, the Captain will review some final safety information, including location and use of personal flotation devices, and areas of the North Wind which are off limits to passengers.
Thank you for your cooperation with these new regulations. We are confident that we can stay safe and also enjoy schooner sailing on the Delaware River.
