(TRAVPR.COM)USA - February 21st, 2013 - On January 18th, 2012, Windjammer Sailing Adventures purchased the S/V Mandalay and brought her from Panama to her new home in Grenada, West Indies. She has been lovingly restored and many say she is more beautiful than she ever was. The S/V Mandalay celebrated her inaugural sail under Windjammer Sailing Adventures in July of 2012.
The S/V Mandalay is turning 90 this year! This 236 ft. sailing ship is the former luxury yacht of financier E.F. Hutton and shipping magnate George Vettleson. Built in 1923, she was christened “Hussar”. In 1953, as “Vema” she was used for oceanographic research by Columbia University. In her 90 years she has seen many oceans.
The S/V Mandalay was so expertly built and has been so well maintained, that you can be a part of her history too. We invite you to come aboard and experience the magic for yourself.
Discover Caribbean Islands that conventional cruise ships just can’t bring you to. Experience secluded beaches, swim with the sea turtles and let the warmth of the Caribbean waters soothe your soul. The Mandalay sails weekly out of her homeport in Grenada. Our itinerary is ever changing, visiting islands such as Bequia, Mayreau, Tobago Cays and more.
Windjammer Sailing Adventures is pleased to tell you that the Windjammer culture is alive and well with the return of Rum Swizzles, crab races, story time, deck parties, knot tying, sailing and star gazing classes, sleeping on deck, games, the playing of Amazing Grace while raising the sails and much more!
