Seeing over the Steering Wheel

Captain's Blog    No Comments

For Woodwind, we only had two sails today. A 3:00 and a sunset sail at 5:30. Both were public cruises. On the first sail there was a nice size birthday party, and on the sunset sail we had a Air Force retirement party of about 20 people. If course there were other guests aboard, these were two of the larger parties on the Woodwind on September 1.

Sailing the Woodwind

On the 3:00 sail, we also had Madison, an eleven year old girl from Calvert County. Her mom has a Catalina 27 that she grew up sailing on . She also went to sailing camp and learned on a FJ. She was back for a return visit, five years from the last time she sailed on the Woodwind. Her mom brought a picture of her sailing the boat as a six year old.  So we just had to get a picture of her with the picture. She now can clearly see over the steering wheel, and dare I say… is taller than me, at 5-foot! Maybe the next picture in the trilogy will be her crewing on the Woodwind in five more years. Wouldn’t that be terrific?

Sailing has been a vital part of Jen's life since she was 5. Racing and cruising with her family filled her summers until she started teaching kids to sail. Her sophomore year in college, she sailed the Caribbean on a 125-ft schooner for credit in science, literature, and history. She now was addicted to schooner sailing. 3 years later, her family built the Woodwind. At 26, she became a captain.
