Sandy Changed Everything
First, I want to thank all of you who contacted us in the wake of Superstorm Sandy. It was heartening to hear your concerns. We escaped with little damage to our vessels but the marinas were not so lucky. Every marina on the Bayshore was seriously damaged; we can only hope operations will be back to normal in the spring. More importantly, many of our Bayshore neighbors were completely devastated by Sandy’s fury; rebuilding will take years. In an effort to help in some small way, Charter Sails will be donating a portion of the proceeds from every charter next season to the Sandy Relief Fund; more details will be forthcoming in the Spring.
We wish you all a healthy & happy New Year and look forward to sailing with you next season.
