About Tall Ship Windy:
The WINDY is a 148 foot traditional four masted gaff topsail schooner. She is built of modern materials, however, like old trading schooners and sail training ships, the WINDY has all the character and charm of the great Age of Sail. Windy was built by Detyens Shipyard, Inc. of Charleston SC. A custom design, she was conceived by Captain Robert Marthai "Captain Bob", longtime sailor and traveler, also became a maritime adventurer, maritime historian, designer and shipbuilder. Windy was welcomed as the biggest and newest schooner to the Lake Michigan Fleet in July 1996. Windy reveals its designer's love of Traditional Sailing Ship, yet integrates modern amenities and safety items such as pressurized plumbing, bow thrusters for docking, and a 300 hp Cummins diesel engine. From the beginning, her mission was intended to bring Tall Ship sailing to the public, for enjoyment, personal and spiritual growth, and self-discovery. In the years since coming to Navy Pier, Windy saw many thousands of students, Girl Scout, Boy Scouts, youth groups, families and other guests across her decks for educational cruises, daysailing, festivals, religious, corporate, and private celebrations. Her skyline cruises became legendary and Windy was awarded the status of official flagship of the City of Chicago, by Mayor Richard M. Daley in 2006.
