Light but Fun…..

Captain's Blog    No Comments

Saturday was a great day to be on the water. Actually I don’t think I’ve ever found a day that isn’t better once you get out on a boat.

Wind or not.

And that’s the way it was today. We did a lot of motoring but saw a lot of great areas and had some wonderful guests aboard.

One big group came out to celebrate their friend Scott’s birthday. The trip was a total surprise pulled off by them.

Happy Birthday Scott....!!

Happy Birthday Scott….!!

Some of his friends got into the raising of the sails. What a fun group. And this was just the beginning of their fun filled day. Enjoy everyone!

We had enough wind to sail most of the sunset cruise and it turned into one of those spectacular Annapolis Sunsets. Woodwind II sailed behind us at one point and was lit up by the sunset. Nice!!

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!!
