What do you do when the wind gusts up to 30 knots and you have food and cocktails to serve? Not only that, but many of our guests are dressed up for an elegant cruise with a gentle breeze. Thank goodness for the Severn River and the adaptable schooner rig. “Folks, the sun is shining, the spring weather and the new green and blossoming trees will be glorious as we sail up the Severn River. It’s extremely windy, so if you have a hat you may want to tie it down or take it off.” With a choice of 4 sails, we only fly 2: A double reefed main and our staysail, the smallest sail in our inventory. Look at the photos. You would never know that the wind was howling.
As we near the dock and the end of the trip, the clouds darken and and drama to a setting sun and beautiful view of Saint Mary’s Church. Thank you Walter Sturm.
