Boat day for Camp Mclean

Boat day for Camp Mclean

What a fun day. We had a great group of kids out today from Camp Mclean in Virginia. They had a ball. Everyone that wanted a turn driving the boat came back and steered.

Our crew Chris brought out a handful of lines and got a bunch of the kids interested in knot tying. And showed them what we use the different knots for on the boat every day.

We sailed all the way out into the bay and past one of the many ships anchored waiting to go up into the port of Baltimore. The kids gave the ship a big hello as we passed and one of the crew on the ship saluted back.

As we made our way back to the dock some of kids let us know what a good time they had. We look forward to seeing everyone from Camp Mclean again next year. Thanks for coming!!!!

I think we had a good time!!

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!!
