Sights on the Bay……

Captain's Blog    No Comments

Between Thomas Point Light and the Bay Bridge was the ground (water) we covered today. It was a great day to be on the water.

We started out in the direction of Thomas Point Light and the winds were generous enough for us to head over toward Bloody Point on Kent Island after that.

On our way to Bloody Point we sailed by one of the many car carriers that bring new vehicles into the USA. These ships are massive and look like they shouldn’t even be floating.

And then on the way in to top it all off the winds picked up while we were reaching and crewmember Melanie was at the helm and got the speed to over 10 knots.Woohoo…way to go Melanie!!!

10.1 knots. Way to go Melanie. Schooner Woodwind is flying home.

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!!
