No not the bay, the beer.

Tuesday is always beer tasting  and this month we are featuring Heavy Seas Beers.

We had 3 excellent sails today with a nice SE breeze that took us down to the Bay Bridge and back a couple of times today.

Our 1st trip we had a group join us from the Edenwald Retirement Center from Towson,MD. They had hired Janet Williman from Historic Annapolis to come out and speak about the Naval Academy and the town of Annapolis.

On our 2nd trip we made it under the bridge and got to see one of the massive car carriers go under the center span as we approached.Cool!!

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!!
