We had a wild and wooly day. About every type of wind condition we could see, we did. It went from  a lazy light wind day to having to drop sails in front of and approaching storm. Good job Andy!

Winds picked up and the speed was awesome

We had birthdays. Jane brought her mom from PA down to come sailing for her birthday and had a great time being capt.

The crew work was phenomenal. Melanie and all the crew had a great time in the fun winds we had. We saw winds up to 22 knots…go Andy go!!

But the icing on the cake for the whole day was during our sunset sail a young gentleman proposed to his girlfriend during the sail and she said……

Yes... look at that ring and smile!!

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!!
