Racing into Annapolis Harbor

Perfect night on the Woodwind

  We had just one sail today on the Woodwind, the other boat had all four cruises, but we only had one. Tonight was a private event, I call it a shmooze cruise. Well the weather and breeze could not have been any better for saying thank you to your best customers. We put up […]

Another beautiful sunset from the Woodwind.

It’s Not Always about Going Fast and Racing…

We had a very light wind day today on the Woodwind. And we had a 4.5 hour private event for employees and their families of a nearby engineering firm. They brought a bunch of kids that were very inquisitive. We did our very best to keep them happy and into the sailing even though we […]

Beautiful sunset on USNA

Monday Funday!

We had such a nice, small cruise on the 11:00 sail on Monday. Our crew member Frank wanted to show the kids aboard how to navigate by using a chart. Hayden, was very intrigued by the entire process. Frank showed him how to triangulate a position using lines of position and how to use a […]

Happy Fathers on Father’s Day

Working on Father’s Day is one of the best days to work on the Schooner Woodwind. You get happy families wanting to share sailing with their children.  Today was no different and we had wonderful weather. It was hot on land, but on the water we had a nice breeze. The breeze was so nice […]

Crab eating at Cantlers, sailed over by the Woodwind

Crabs and Sailboat Racing… that’s what Annapolis does

The wind was blowing and we were psyched to have a private charter book the boat for 5 hours to go to Cantler’s Crab House.  This would be my first trip to Cantler’s this season by Woodwind, which is always the best way to arrive at Cantler’s. Our cruise had 30 guests aboard and the […]

Three friends celebrating a birthday on the Schooner Woodwind!

A little wind, a lot of fun

Today was one of those days, when the wind didn’t really want to say hello to the Schooner Woodwind. We had a great team building program with multi girl scout programs within the MD/VA/DC region. The girls had a lot of fun enjoying their time aboard a 74-foot Schooner!  We had them sailing the boat, […]

Minddrive Kids from Kansas City

Teamwork is Everything

Everyone talks about team work, but really what is it? That was our challenge today with our JUNIOR Girl Scouts from Vienna, VA. So imagine, 26 girls that ranged from 9-11 years old. They all signed up for the “Power of Team” Sailing Cruise. This is where the crew and captain train the girls to […]

Woodwind rounds the windward mark first.

It Ain’t Over Until…

I only worked one sail today, the Wednesday Night Race.  Wow!  It was so much cooler on the Bay! During the race we saw 8-15 knots of wind. We picked a perfect racecourse that ended with enough time for the guests to take a turn at the helm. We had a bunch of young kids […]

Sailing fast on Sunset Sail

One Sail, Two Sail, Three Sail, Four

Winds were “honking” when I woke up. It’s going to be a terrific day for sailing, I thought. I even wrote this on Woodwind’s Facebook page while trying to find a pic of the Woodwind healing nicely to add to the post. When I arrived to the dock, the tide was down 2 feet from […]

Getting ready for the start of the Wednesday Night Race. On the starting line just before the start.

Over 55 miles in one day

What a day!  The wind started blowing from the SE at 10-15 and increased to over 22 knots by the 4:00 sail. We were lucky enough to have a 4.5 hour private charter for a day outing on the bay. We put just under 40 miles on the boat in just this cruise. We sailed […]
