Smilin Jack! At the wheel of the Schooner Woodwind

Jacks parents grew up sailing in Barnegut Bay and had a small boat named Smilin Jack. And their son is wearing one of their old hats they had made for the boat as he captains the Schooner Woodwind. How fitting!! Jack and his family joined us from Virginia today. It was a pleasure to have you aboard.

On our last sail of the day we were treated to being able to watch all of the starts of the Solomon’s Island race. What a beautiful night to race down the bay. The full moon was with the racers all night long. I was jealous!!

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!!
