Charter Companies Help Tradewinds Clients

Charter companies are offering boats and discounts to sailors who risk losing vacations after Tradewinds USA recently announced that it was shutting its operation for good.

A March 31 letter posted on the company's website informs clients that Sunsail, The Moorings, CYOA, Footloose, and VIP Yacht Charters are ready to assist clients who've already booked trips with the company, which had bases in St. Maarten, Tortola, Marathon, and Annapolis.
