Tall Ships Ball: The Roarin’ 20’s
The Schooner Club is open for business!
We missed you in ’20 and ’21 so we’re roarin’ into the 20’s a little late, but it’s gonna be big. Proprietor, Al Roker from NBC’s TODAY Show is inviting only his very best customers back to the infamous Schooner Club. That’s you! The Schooner Club is well hidden behind the front doors of the very proper Riverside Yacht Club so flip your collar up, pull your hat down low and make sure no one’s following you. You’ll need the password – “Sea Star” – and then prepare for a night you’ll never forget. Our private chef is cooking up the finest food, the band is tuned and ready to go and the boat just arrived with the hooch so the liquor will be flowin’ freely. The joint’s fillin’ fast so reserve your table now and get ready for the party of the decade.
And remember: What happens at the Schooner Club stays at the Schooner Club.
Some things don’t change, like the need to teach science, sailing and job skills to over 32,000 young people every year. More than 50% of the students we teach receive scholarship assistance and your generous support ensures that we can keep our promise that no young person will ever be excluded from a SoundWaters program due to the inability to pay.

What to wear
The roaring 1920s were about throwing caution to the wind. So, what should you wear if anything goes? Some ideas
Ladies, think “glitz and glam.” Art deco patterns and colors were all the rage in the 1920s. Try incorporating fringe, beading, gemstones, or feathers into your party attire. No outfit is complete without proper accessorizing! For a true flapper-inspired look, try a beaded or feather headband. Long pearl necklaces, small beaded purses, long gloves, and drop earrings were also popular accessories for 1920s party wear. Stilettos and other higher heels are not recommended as we are in a tent with AstroTurf flooring. We would also suggest a sweater or wrap as the tent may be chilly

For the guys, it’s all about class and sophistication. In the 1920s, men were introducing lighter and brighter colors into their wardrobes. Pinstripe or plaid three-piece suits were very popular, as well as striped dress shirts in a variety of colors (including tan, green, blue, lilac, and peach). In the summer, white or ivory suits were common, as well as white trousers and a navy-blue blazer.
Complete the look with a two-tone art deco oxford shoe, suspenders, and a snazzy striped or polka dot bowtie. And don’t forget the must-have 1920s men’s accessory: a hat. Popular styles included felt fedoras with wide brims, homburgs, and a classic straw boater or skimmer hat in the summer.
