About two dozen WolfTreks travelers sailed out of New York Harbor at sunset on Friday with a spectacular view of the Statue of Liberty on one side and the new Freedom Tower — the replacement for the twin towers destroyed on 9/11 — in Lower Manhattan on the other.

The Regatta’s first stop on the WolfTrek’s New England/Canada Fall Folliage Cruise was Newport, R.I., where the travelers toured the mansions of the Gilded Age that made Newport famous as a haven for the wealthy.

Next stop: Bar Harbor, Maine, and Acadia National Park.
