QuirkyCruise Island Windjammers Cruise Giveaway

Boy do Heidi and Ted  love saying … “And the Winner Is” …

We’re excited to announce the winner of our Island Windjammers Caribbean cruise giveaway is Gail Whitworth from the USA!

Gail and her guest will enjoy a free 6-night Caribbean sailing-ship cruise for 2 with Island Windjammers.

When Gail found out she was the winner of our free Island Windjammers cruise a few weeks ago, chosen at random, she of course was thrilled. She responded to us saying:

“What a wonderful morning surprise! I cannot believe my luck! I am excited beyond words to take this cruise and already contacted and invited my best friend of 60 years, who loves to sail. Sadly, my husband died recently and would have loved to have been soaking it all up. Rest assured, the snorkeling would have been the cherry on top, just as it will be for my friend Sheilagh. Thank you so much for this glorious lift to my day! Gail”

Island Windjammers is one of our favorite small-ship quirky lines. Here’s our review of them:

Remember Windjammer Barefoot Cruises? Enormously popular in the ‘80s and ‘90s for its ultra-casual, rum-fueled Caribbean sailing adventures, the line folded in 2008, leaving thousands of loyal passengers sad and landlocked. Enter Island Windjammers. Launched in 2009 by and for Windjammer Barefoot regulars when they got together to buy the 101-foot brigantine schooner DIAMANT, the line is a more mature version of its barefoot predecessor, operating truly intimate sailing adventures that tootle around the quieter corners of the Caribbean, far from the megaship mega-crowds. Sure, there’s still plenty of rum punch and Red Stripes consumed, but the volume of the party has been turned way down to just the perfect level. (Island Windjammers is not to be confused with Sail Windjammer, a one-ship line that operates the 72-pax Mandalay, formerly of the Windjammer Barefoot Cruises fleet.)
