Close Encounters of the Crew Kind…

So there I was on a beautiful Tuesday morning raising the sails when all of the sudden I was inundated with crew from all directions and in all types of water craft.

Capt. Jen on the paddle board, Whitney on the laser, Sam in the blue kayak and Jocyln in the red kayak. What a greta way to spend this awesome day. I can think of only one way better. That’s right sailing with me on the Woodwind. Our first trip of the day turned into a private charter for 2. Joe and Fran from Pittsburgh were the only 2 that signed up and had the boat all to themselves. We had a wonderful sail.

Our next trip was almost as private, we had only 2 couples sign up for that one and we had an excellent sail. The last sail of the day was our Beer tasting with Heavy Seas.

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!!
