Perfect night on the Woodwind

Thursday night racing on the Severn River- a great back drop for a private event on the Woodwind. These are J-22s coming into their leeward race mark.

 

We had just one sail today on the Woodwind, the other boat had all four cruises, but we only had one. Tonight was a private event, I call it a shmooze cruise. Well the weather and breeze could not have been any better for saying thank you to your best customers.

We put up 3 sails and sailed across the Bay. We served the catered food as we passed the Thursday night race fleet of J-22s, J-24s, J-80s and J-70s. What a delightful back drop! And we stayed down wind of the entire fleet so that we would not effect the night’s race results with our big wind shadow.

Just a few guests wanted to steer the boat. But they enjoyed it thoroughly, especially with the cool breezes. We were averaging around 8 knots as we crossed the Chesapeake Bay.

They say pictures say a 1000 words, here’s some images:

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.

    We have been fortunate enough to be invited on this great “Client Appreciation” charter through Ameriprise approx. 10 plus times. Every time, Captain Jenn has been our Captain – she is so courteous and knowledgeable of the ship and the Annapolis harbor. Its always an exciting but most relaxing time. The food is exceptional and the crew is right on time, every time, with a cold beer, glass of wine, etc. And, as Captain Jenn said “every charter Ameriprise” books turns out to be a perfect evening on the Woodwind”. I highly recommend this trip if you want to do something special in Annapolis.
