Barefoot Windjammers cruise brought back

The good news first: For many years, a fleet of six authentic sailing ships, serviced by a supply ship, went cruising the smaller islands of the Caribbean in a manner that was pure magic to its loyal followers. Created by the colorful Capt. Mike Burke, their crews were an insouciant but lovable group who joked with passengers, drank with them, accompanied them on island excursions and snorkeling, served them excellent food, and maintained a sailing tradition that featured informality both in dress and socializing, youthful, fun camaraderie, and a general atmosphere befitting the name "Barefoot Windjammers."
