Here is their website:

They put on a great trip. Enjoy!!!!

Unfortunately Brian, I believe your information may be incorrect. The website has a box, right side, that indicates on September 27th that the Lord Sheffield was back in the water (presumably after drydock) and was taking bookings .. but just above that is a link with a date of October 15th that says "The Lord Sheffield, unfortunately, was damaged in Hurricane Gonzalo and we are not able to accept bookings at this time. I will post here when we can better understand what the future looks like."[/quote]

There is no further information on their website. I have been unable to ascertain any additional information on her condition.

Sorry about that, I completely misread the notes on the right and never even looked at the dates.

'S Okay ... took me a turn or 2 to decipher it, then I saw the dates. Hope springs eternal and all that.

Seemed like the fix was pretty quick for a ship with a ferroconcrete hull (but hey, whadda I know). I would keep an eye out; they may get her up and going again. That would be good, she was certainly easy on the eyes and good for commerce generally.

Just got this email back from Lord Sheffield.
robert.ash@lordsheffield.com

to me
Dear Brian,

We are working on getting back in the water a soon as possible.

Probably 2 to 3 months before she is ready.

Thanks for your interest.

Sincerely,

Rob

Thanks! I guess I should have just inquired to them directly! Appreciate the legwork! Good to hear she will again be sailing.

Thanks Fred...had seen some of the damage but not all of these. What I was really wondering is how fast they are doing the cleanup and getting the beach bars up and going at Orient where I will be after the Dec 14th Sagitta sailing.
