History of Greenbury Point…..

Captain's Blog    No Comments

Every Monday is History Day on the Schooner Woodwind. This weeks subject  was on the history of Greenbury Point.

Our speaker, Janet Williman, is  very engaging and takes the time to come around the boat and talk to everyone in small groups so all can hear.

Thank you Janet for another educational trip. It is always fun to learn new things about the area we live in.

Greenbury Point was the sight of the original settlement in our area back in the 1640′s.

Our trips all day had plenty of breeze and we were able to sail down to and under the Bay Bridge a couple of times today. It is such a different perspective of the bridge seeing it from underneath.(always fun)!!

Why is there a turn in the bridge? if you've sailed with me you should know

We also made it down to to the bridge on our sunset cruise and I was able to capture a pic of the sun between the spans.

Same angle under the bridge but different view with the sun setting!!

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!!
