Island Windjammers Celebrates One-Year Anniversary
Island Windjammers is celebrating its one-year anniversary of offering Caribbean tall ship cruises. Dec. 5 marks the anniversary of the inaugural voyage of the company’s 12-passenger schooner, the Diamant, based in St. George’s, Grenada.
Island Windjammers was formed by and is aimed at loyal fans of the now-defunct Windjammer Barefoot Cruises. The new company offers six-night sail cruises to less-visited islands such as Bequia, Mayreau, Tobago Cays, Union Island and Carriacou. The company’s emphasis is on laid-back, casual vacations. Shorts, swimsuits and bare feet make up the dress code on the Diamant.
“We want to celebrate Island Windjammers’ first birthday in a very memorable way,” said Liz Harvey, the company president. “Noted rum expert Dave Russell will be hosting the Island Windjammers Anniversary Rum Cruise, Dec. 5 to 11.” Russell will offer complimentary tastings of an exciting variety of exotic rums, rum cocktail lessons, and presentations on the history of rum. Island Windjammers said it has had a very successful first year, and hopes to expand its fleet and itineraries in the not-too-distant future.
