Winter Maintenance on our 1928 schooner

Windborne Charters

It’s Windbornes winter birthday again…this year she gets new suspenders.

The masts are whole trees being Norwegian spruce selected from the forest 100 years ago, so its not surprising they need a little love. Canadian Oregon was used for the booms. All the old girls rigging is being replaced this year. Happy birthday Windborne.

Just got to remember where everything goes! We hope to get some sunny weather soon too stay on track with our maintenance plans, but hey, it is winter in beautiful New Zealand after all.

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