Great Day of Sailing

Captain's Blog    No Comments

We had four terrific sails today. The wind was perfect. Blowing from the ESE at 10-15 knots all day. It was a great direction for going toward the Bay Bridge and we actually made it under the Bridge on 3 out of 4 sails.

It was also the day of birthdays. On every trip we did today we had people celebrating their birthdays.(Congratulations to all).

Bill’s daughter brought him out on the Woodwind as a birthday treat. And he did a great job driving the boat!

The sunset sail was the best though, we made it under the bridge with only 3 sails up but decided to put up the Fisherman sail for the trip back. This made the sail very exciting and the guests had a ball. We were treated to another great sunset.

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!!
