Windy Monday

Captain's Blog    No Comments

Boy did we ever have winds. Every sail we did today we started with a certain amount of sails up and ended up taking some down as the wind strength picked up all day. Our first charter was a team building exercise and we ended up having to drop the Fisherman sail and finish the exercise with 3 sails.

As the winds continued to pick up the sailing was fantastic and there were a lot of big smiles on the faces of the guests that took the opportunity to come back a steer the ship.

By the time we got to our sunset sail we were sailing on main and jib alone. This was nice though so we could slow the boat down to listen to our guest speaker. Local author Burt Hubinger came aboard and shared the facts of the war of 1812 that inspired him to write his book”1812 Rights of Passage”. Thank you Burt the guests thoroughly enjoyed your story.

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!!
