It is with deep sadness in our hearts we share that Sail Windjammer, Inc. will be closing operations. Recently there was some damage to our S/V Mandalay. We gathered all repair and maintenance estimates, costs, and our financial position to evaluate how we could move forward financially. We have tried everything possible to figure out how to continue this past week. Ultimately, we cannot see a path forward for our operation. COVID-19 has been a devastation to our business that we don’t see a way to recover from. Not qualifying for any small business loans along with 10 months of no income has crippled our operations.
There aren’t words to describe what our Sail Windjammer family is feeling. We are heart broken and crushed. The feeling you got when you stepped foot on the Mandalay is how we all felt arranging each cruise. The serenity and peace while sailing on her is a feeling unmatched and will be cherished forever. The past eight years have been a life changing journey for so many and we thank you for accompanying us on that journey.
