Celebrating Windborne: A Testament to Time and Tide

Windborne Charters

A Special Winter Birthday

Once again, we find ourselves celebrating a special occasion: Windborne’s winter birthday. This year, she’s receiving quite the gift—a brand new set of suspenders to add to her charm and resilience against the elements.

A Legacy of Craftsmanship

The Masts

Windborne’s masts, majestic and enduring, are crafted from whole Norwegian spruce trees, carefully selected from the forest a century ago. It’s no small wonder, then, that these towering structures require a bit of tender loving care from time to time.

The Booms

For the booms, they’ve chosen Canadian Oregon, a material known for its strength and durability. This year, in honor of her birthday, we’re undertaking a significant project: replacing all of the old girl’s rigging. It’s a monumental task, but one that’s crucial for keeping Windborne in her best shape. Happy birthday, dear Windborn

Anticipating the Journey Ahead

Returning to the Coromandel

Looking ahead, our plan is to navigate back to the Coromandel by the end of October. We’re eagerly anticipating another stunning season filled with sailing adventures. The Coromandel’s breathtaking landscapes, coupled with the thrill of the open sea, promise a series of memorable experiences. We can hardly wait to hoist Windborne’s sails once more, embarking on a journey that celebrates not only her winter birthday but the spirit of exploration that she embodies.

A Vision for the Future

As we prepare for the months ahead, our hearts are full of excitement for what’s to come. Here’s to Windborne—may she continue to ride the waves with grace and agility, bringing joy and adventure to all who sail with her.

The plan is too be back in the Coromandel towards the end of October. We look forward to another stunning season of sailing adventures.
