Sunday Cruises and what really BIG is!

Captain's Blog3 Comments

The wind blew from the South West today.  It was an easy beam reach as we headed out across the bay.  The Kermizian, Hadfield and Renda families introduced themselves to me in the cockpit for our 1:30 cruise.  Many of them came from New Jersey on a family outing.  They were a delight to have on board and to watch and listen to their good natured teasing.  They truly enjoyed each others company.

Woodwind is not so big after all!

Later in the day we passed the freighter Cape Venture with young Keegan at the helm. This was a totally new experience, but you can see he is enjoying the adventure.  It gave our guests a chance to see what big is really about.  Woodwind is minuscule compared to this 800 foot ship from Limassol, Cyprus.  Don’t worry folks, CapeVenture is at anchor.

 

 

Jackie took the helm and was surprised to find how easy Woodwind is to sail.

About Captain Ken

How do you answer the question, What do I want to do when I grow up? For me, it was, ask the question what do I love to do that I can share with others and make it a career? I taught instrumental music to elementary students for 25 years. When that was no longer an option due to budget cuts, I asked the question again? This time the answer was, with the help of my family, Schooner Woodwind.
