Lazy Hazy Day…….

Haze on the Bay....

Haze on the Bay….

It started out as a very lazy day and ended up a very hazy day. The winds were supposed to be light in the morning and it surprised us and picked up to 12 knots. We were able to sail out to one of the coal carriers anchored in the Bay waiting to head up to the port of Baltimore.

We had a big group from the Reston area that came out and helped us sail all the way around the ship.

We ended the day with another great performance from The Ship’s Company. Thank you Brad and Dallas for some fun and entertaining songs and stories.

And to top it all off we had a wonderful guest captain on our sunset trip. His name was Ben and his parents were celebrating their anniversary with us, as they do every year. Thank you guys, it was a pleasure to have you aboard and I thoroughly enjoyed having Ben drive the boat. We’ll see you next time.

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!!
