What a terrific day we had on the water today!! The first sail we had a girl scout cruise along with some other public guests. They were treated to some fantastic sailing. We started with all 4 sails, and had to lower the fisherman before we tacked as we made it under the Bay Bridge. […]
Today’s blog was inspired by this great couple that came out sailing today. They had just been out with us last week and purchased a couple of our spectacular Woodwind Koozies (free beer every time you you come back). So in the morning they looked over and saw the koozies and said ” Let’s go […]
Tonight, we sailed with one of my favorite groups of the season… J-Word Sailing School. All season, we sail around each other telling our guests about their sailing school and what maneuver they are teaching their students at that moment. It may be a man overboard drill, how to hove-to, or just how to sail […]
Boy did we ever have winds. Every sail we did today we started with a certain amount of sails up and ended up taking some down as the wind strength picked up all day. Our first charter was a team building exercise and we ended up having to drop the Fisherman sail and finish the […]
The NE breeze took Woodwind II to Thomas Point Lighthouse today. Along the way we came across some amazing small boats, a Moth and a gaff rigged schooner. There’s a boat out there for everyone, different styles serving different purposes!
A beautiful Saturday filled with wind seemed like a fairy tale. But that is what we had for the 11:00 sail! We sailed straight across the Chesapeake Bay. Cool breezes with low humidity was a wonderful way to start the day! The low humidity was with us all day. The breezes slowed down as the […]
We had a great day sailing Thursday and beat the heat by staying on the water all day. The breezes were light but we were able to avoid using the dreaded 5th sail, the D-Sail (our trusty diesel). Our 1st and 3rd sails had about 20 people apiece, our 2nd sail had one couple from […]
After several days of hot and humid airs, we rode the leading edge of the cold front this evening! Aahhhhhhhhhh, so refreshing.
It was a strange day on the water. All sails except the first sail had virtually no breeze for a part of the cruise. And then all within the same cruise, the wind picked up and we were going 7.5 knots and the boat is healed over. Most of this was due to small clouds […]
Much gratitude to all that prayed for wind or sacrificed a mosquito to their favorite deity. We got the sea breeze we were hoping for this evening!! The southerly shift supplemented the second sunset of the summer season B) We had some fun folks aboard our charter on Woodwind II. They enjoyed cool summery cocktails and munched […]
