The Windjammer was designed by naval architect Lee Clough in 1985. It was built to be a blue water ocean racer for Lee’s father, his mother and him to crew in the races that happen yearly off the coast of Australia. It was very successful in those races winning many firsts and always placing. She is a 60’ sailing Schooner with a 10 foot draft, 6 ton ball keel and 80 foot masts. She is slim, only 12 feet at the beam, incredibly stiff and is entirely aluminum. Lee kept her until 2015 when we were fortunately able to acquire her. She is a very special boat, one of a kind, wicked fast, incredibly stable, a pleasure to sail and beautiful to see under full sail. We have just completed a total system upgrade and are bringing her home in the early months of 2018 from the Gold Coast of Australia to Key West. There, she will be put into service to provide an exciting sail for our clients from Key West to Havana and back. We will continue to race her, as well, as going fast is what she does.
