And what a great day it was for it!!

The sun was out and the winds were blowing 10-15 knots all day. Yeeha hold onto your hats.

We started our day with a trip full of girl scouts doing our Power of  Team program. They got to learn about the boat, trim the sails and captain the boat as well. They had lots of fun and did a wonderful job getting us back to port.

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!!
