What's up with SailTime Annapolis?
 
Does anyone know the current situation with SailTime's Annapolis base? I was considering joining, but it appears they may be out of business. Their phone has been disconnected and a sign on the doors says they are 'on vacation'. Emails to the Annapolis base & to SailTime headquarters have not been returned.

It does seem like the owners of SailTime Annapolis have closed their doors. I say this because we received news of the situation just about the way everybody else did; through an email sent our at midnight on June 30th.
However, once they quit, if they've quit, then the territory reverts back to
The SailTime Group, who has no intention of abandoning the territory or the members of the base. It is unfortunate that this happened over this beautiful holiday weekend. I am confident that as soon as we can get some resolution from the attorneys, we will move swiftly to put ST Annapolis back into an active concern. The sign on the door of the apparent former license holder's office clearly provides contact information for members and those inquiring at the address. Stay tuned for more information as soon as we have it.

SailTime Annapolis
 
I was a member of Sailtime Annapolis for several years. I really enjoyed it and thought it offered a fair value until they started making a few changes to increase their revenue; thus reducing my potential sailing time. The base owners are great folks and I wanted to see them succeed. I don't know all the details of why or what will happen next but I plan on keeping my ears open with the possibility of rejoining if there's an attractive restructure plan. If you put 7 members on a boat and charge them $8k/yr I would think you could operate a boat with some profit on $56K/yr. I wish I had 2 or 3 other reliable folks to start an LLC. Even with a 4 partner LLC the boat would still sit there 50% of the time. In any case, sorry I went off on a tangent. I'll be interested to see how this one plays out. Good luck to T & P owners of Sailtime Annapolis.
