Leslie and her family joined us today also. They are from England and were over to visit their son who is working on his Phd. at Princeton.

We had an old dockhand from the Woodwind family join us today. Chris Criswell and his wife Sarah from Kent Island joined us for their 10th wedding anniversary.Congratulations to both of you. Chris said he worked her on the docks back in 1997. It was good to have you aboard.

During our safety speech on each cruise we always tell people to be careful of the booms when we are gybing or tacking. You might even have to…….

The beautiful SS Sohpie came through the harbor just as we returned from our last trip. She was the last Trumpy built at the old Trumpy boat works in Annapolis where the Charthouse now stands. It is always nice to see this classic yacht .

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!!
