NEW YORK - May 10, 2021 - PRLog -- The event will feature a sailing regatta parade of vessels leaving from Chelsea Piers 61 and 62, NYC, moving toward New York City's famous landmark and international symbol of freedom, the Statue of Liberty, whose official name is, "Liberty Enlightening the World." The regatta of vessels will be followed by professional drones recording and live-streaming to audiences around the world. Upon the arrival at the Statue of Liberty there will be a symbolic performance off of the main sailing vessel by the internationally acclaimed aerial dancer, Ms. Katerina Soldatou, whose extreme aerial performance, while suspended in air from the mast of the ship, symbolizes the courage of the Greeks to dive into the void and defy their Ottoman oppressors and commence their fight for freedom in 1821.

"Sail to Freedom NYC" will also be accompanied and attended by participants on chartered or private vessels in parade formation. The unprecedented nature of this historic moment -- a national Bicentennial celebration in a time of worldwide pandemic – inspired the event's organizers to create an exciting and memorable celebration of the spirit of Greek Independence and ideals in spite of the many limitations of international travel and social distancing. This sailing parade celebration will be remembered for years to come — and the organizers' hope is that it will inspire similar events worldwide for Hellenes, Philhellenes and all those who support and value the Hellenic ideals of freedom, independence and democracy. "Sail to Freedom NYC" is organized by a team of international professionals with the support of the Hellenic organizations and diaspora community of the greater New York City area.
