She has been restored to service (there are several YouTube clips of her sailing). She operates now on cruises around the Grenadines and in three months time I hope to be aboard her.

Let's not forget the Yankee Clipper. She was one of the last 4 still sailing. Flying Cloud had been taken out of the fleet and laid up in Trinidad for quite some time. That's where Yankee Clipper is supposed to be at now. Here is a shot of her in happiewr times:

Also, the Jammer babe forum mentions that Polynesia did not sell at the December auction, no bids with a minimum of $410,000. A January auction is possible. Here is a site with many pictures of her in Aruba:

MANDALAY so far is the only vessel of the no longer existing Windjammer Barefoot Cruises which found a new home. Her new owners are in the Galapagos Islands:

MANDALAY will be ready for new adventures in about a year.

The fate of the other fleet mates:
FLYING CLOUD might be still at the breakers yard:
Maybe already broken up or under preparation for being scuttled as a diving attraction.

The third attempt to auction her off was scheduled for December. If this also failed she might be scuttled.

LEGACY, no news since this picture was posted to shipspotting:

All 4 vessels are still listed by travel agencies as if nothing has happend.
