Friday, 8/10 Great day!

Woodwind sails well in all conditions, but she excelled today.  For such a fast boat, Woodwind is well balanced.  That does not mean she will tolerate a poor helmsman.  Isabelle, was up for the challenge.  I held the wheel and  my young student felt my corrections, concentrating on the distant horizon.  Then I let go and like a pro, she guided the 74 foot vessel across the water at a fast 9 knots.  Nice sailing!

   Sue Steinbrook, who is a professional photographer, was kind enough to share this beautiful sunset.  Notice how the amber tones of the Douglas Fir bowsprit match the clouds.

Sue Steinbrook took this photo on our cruise tonight. “Why I Love Annapolis” is what she called this photo.

About Captain Ken

How do you answer the question, What do I want to do when I grow up? For me, it was, ask the question what do I love to do that I can share with others and make it a career? I taught instrumental music to elementary students for 25 years. When that was no longer an option due to budget cuts, I asked the question again? This time the answer was, with the help of my family, Schooner Woodwind.
