None of the 50 passengers aboard were injured, but the schooner had to go into dock in St Vincent and a new mast was shipped down from the States in lengths and welded together. The foremast had acted as an exhaust for the generator.
Windjammer Barefoot Cruises used to have a fleet of schooners running cruises in the Caribbean, but in 2007 the Burke family company, based in Miami, sold their schooners by auction. A group of former Windjammer passengers bought the yacht Dimamont and continued on with this relaxed form of cruising.
More recently, they formed Sail Windjammer and operate just in the Grenadines.
The Mandalay, was built as a yacht in 1923, and is the only ex-Windjammer Barefoot Cruisers schooner still sailing, but the Yankee Clipper, originally a 2-master and then altered to a 3-master, is still laid up in Trinidad and some Americans plan to get her going again.
