Woodwind rounds the windward mark first.

Woodwind rounds the windward mark first.

I only worked one sail today, the Wednesday Night Race.  Wow!  It was so much cooler on the Bay!

During the race we saw 8-15 knots of wind. We picked a perfect racecourse that ended with enough time for the guests to take a turn at the helm. We had a bunch of young kids on the boat that wanted to help, especially when it came to steering the boat after the race.

I had a terrific start, great boat speed, but perhaps I got complacent. My Dad has been waiting a long time to yell inside buoy room. I;m usually the one that tries for that first. This time, I was blind sided by the concept.

About Captain Jennifer

Sailing has been a vital part of Jen's life since she was 5. Racing and cruising with her family filled her summers until she started teaching kids to sail. Her sophomore year in college, she sailed the Caribbean on a 125-ft schooner for credit in science, literature, and history. She now was addicted to schooner sailing. 3 years later, her family built the Woodwind. At 26, she became a captain.
