Sunset on Schooner Woodwind

Brewsday Evening Sail….

It started out as a very light wind day today but increased as the day wore on. We were supposed to match race against the other boat on our 1st sail but the wind did not cooperate. On the 2nd sail the wind filled in nicely and we had a great sail as we did […]

Bay Bridge Sunset Aboard Schooner Woodwind

Great Day of Sailing

We had four terrific sails today. The wind was perfect. Blowing from the ESE at 10-15 knots all day. It was a great direction for going toward the Bay Bridge and we actually made it under the Bridge on 3 out of 4 sails. It was also the day of birthdays. On every trip we […]

From Point to Point

Today we had only one trip. From 11:00 to 3:30. Normally we are only out for 2 hours so this limits us on how far we can go based on the wind. But with 4 and a half hours to play with and winds blowing from 10 to almost 20 knots at some times the […]
