What a great day of sailing we had Saturday. The Perron family was back to sail with us again and it was good to see you guys. Matt and Becca both took turns at the wheel and they did great. The winds were light, but it was not hot out and it made for a great day to be on the bay.

Some of the guests took the relaxin’ part to the next level and my co-captian Lake let the gentle breeze and pace of the boat rock her right to sleep. More energy for town later!

Friend of the Woodwind Bill Hoker was out paddling in the bay in his kayak when he caught up with us and drafted along behind our stern for quite a bit. We were sailing along at a good 7 to 8 knots and he was able to stay right with us.

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!!
