Thomas Point Lighthouse from the Woodwind

Lighthouse Cruise 2014

A beautiful day for a cruise to see lighthouses. As for the wind, it was light too. We tried to do as much sailing as we could, and managed to sail about 1/3 of the time. The other time was spent motoring (and making a nice breeze over the boat) as we headed to see […]

Wave! It’s your Birthday!

Our day started around noon on Woodwind II. We were planning on doing three sails that were all public, 2-hour cruises. The day started with Woodwind (with my Dad aboard) going into Back Creek for a tour of the local waterfront marinas and properties. This is what we sometimes do when there isn’t much wind […]

Wind Dance- Its Only Weird if it doesn’t work!

Can you really ask Mother Nature to provide you with wind if you offer up a boat full of people doing the Wind Dance? Our first cruise we had a great family reunion of the Court Family.  Many of them sailed the boat and enjoyed the time at the helm- including the little ones. The […]

Sailing on the Woodwind

Is this the same schooner?

The first conversation of the day started with, “Is this the same schooner?….” We get this question a lot, followed by “as used in the Wedding Crasher’s Movie?” But this was a different question… “as the one that was here, maybe 17 years ago?” I answered them, “yes it was, did you sail with us […]

Celebrations Aboard!

It was a day for celebrating!  We had three bachelorette parties aboard on 2 cruises.  They were all low key, and just wanted to spend their day sailing with their friends. On the sunset sail, we had a couple aboard Robin and (oh no… I forgot his name- I guess that’s better than writing the […]

You Know it’s Windy when…

You know it’s a windy, awesome day for sailing on the Woodwind when: Frequent Sailors’ are on each cruise and bring their friends (Russ, Joyce, Deb, Patrick, Pat, Ana, etc.) Frequent Sailors’ come by themselves because they are spontaneous and know a good sailing day when they see one. (Kathy) You have to tell guests […]

America, the Beautiful

Over this holiday weekend, it is easy to remember why we fought so hard to be our own country. What a beautiful country it is. And I am so thankful that I get to take people out sailing on the Woodwinds and introduce them to sailing. We had a terrific full weekend of sailing and […]

Sailing into the sunset on a Schooner

AAA came for a visit of Annapolis

AAA, the travel and media division- who write the books, and magazines came for a conference in Annapolis.  We wanted to show them a terrific time on the water, so we sailed them into the sunset! They loved Annapolis! Especially seeing it from the water. We were lucky to get some great photos of the […]

Waking up aboard the Woodwind. The view from the Boat & Breakfast!

Good Morning Annapolis Harbor

As the Captain of the Boat & Breakfast this weekend. I was delighted by the sky just after sunrise. I love waking up and seeing this view!  None of the guests were awake at the time, and it was a perfect moment to relax.

Dreams Come True

Today was an exciting day!  The winds were beautiful and the temperature was mild. On every cruise other than the first one & sunset sail, we had a bachelorette party.  On the 1:30, we had two groups. On the 4:00, we had another one.  We made sure that the bride to be got a turn […]
