AJ Meerwald in Annapolis for a visit

Schooner AJ Meerwald, sailing in Annapolis

We had 4 excellent sails today. The winds were light for the first 3 then really piped up for the sunset. Our first trip was an open 2 hour tour of the bay, then our next 2 trips were private charters. On the 2nd trip were were saluted by cannon fire from the A.J. Meerwald as they sailed by. They are a 115′ gaffed rigged schooner built in 1928. They were built in the style of the Delaware Bay Oyster Schooners. It was a pretty sight to seem them under sail, and to get the canon salute!!

About Captain Mickey

Working as a Captain on the Schooner Woodwind is awesome. I figured out how to get paid for my favorite hobby(sailing). I started sailing when I was 6 years old right here on the bay. I am a very avid sailboat racer and when not working you can usually find me out racing. I lived/sailed in the Caribbean for 24 yrs. I returned to the Bay area 4 years ago and enjoy every day I am on the water!!
