Mother's Day on the Woodwind

Mother’s Day on the Woodwind

What a great way to spend the day. Bring your mom out for sailing and a nice brunch to boot. That is what everyone did yesterday.

We had awesome sailing all day with winds from 15 to gusts of 30 knots.

We sailed with only a reefed main and jib all day but the sailing  was still exciting.

Our 1st sail of the day was our Mother’s Day Brunch sail and we were completely sold out. We sailed over to Kent Island under jib only till everyone was stuffed and then we hoisted the main and sailed up to the Bay Bridge. We had several frequent sailors out for the day. One was celebrating her birthday. Martina comes out several times a year and has a turn steering the boat each time.

Happy Birthday Martina!!!

Our last 2 sails of the day were also exciting. We shook out one reef on the main and sailed with main and jib alone and were able to get under the bay bridge and back on both our 4:00 and 6: 30 sails.

We were treated to another spectacular Annapolis sunset on our way in from our last sail. My 1st of the season and looking forward to many more!!

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!!
