Woodwind sailing into the sunset

Another great day on the water…..

What a great day for sailing. Then again I have never seen a bad day for sailing. Any day on the water is a good day. The winds started off a little light in the morning as did the crowds. But as the day progressed the winds picked up and the number of passengers increased. […]

Beer tasting on the Schooner Woodwind with Flying Dog Brewery

It doesn’t get any better than this……

Tonights line-up included their Woody Creek White, Old Scratch Amber lager and Snake Dog IPA. Ben Wiser from the Flying Dog Brewery was on hand to […]

Not Just any Monday…..

Monday started out with a forecast of rain, no wind and not too many passengers signed up. But that all changed! It didn’t rain all day, the wind picked up and blew 10 knots most of the day and everyone figured this out and came sailing with us. Our 1st sail of the day took […]

Thomas Point Lighthouse

Thomas Point Lighthouse and back……

Breeze on! We had a wonderful 1st sail with only 4 people all the way down to Thomas Point Lighthouse and back. The wind was blowing 15-18 knots from the NW and it made it an easy sail . Everyone got involved in raising the sails and steering the boat. The crowds were light, I […]

Sunset over Annapolis

Chesapeake Bay Oysters…..and Sailing!

History Monday is always a lot of fun. And this Monday proved to be the same. New fact: Did you know Chesapeake is Algonquin for “shellfish bay” ? The winds were very light to start the day off, but picked up a little as the day wore on and we were able to ghost around […]

Schooner Woodwind II

Light but Fun…..

Saturday was a great day to be on the water. Actually I don’t think I’ve ever found a day that isn’t better once you get out on a boat. Wind or not. And that’s the way it was today. We did a lot of motoring but saw a lot of great areas and had some […]

Makayla at the wheel of the 74' Schooner Woodwind

What a great story…..

  Hello, I have sailed on Woodwind on numerous occasions. I brought my young (14 yrs.) niece to to enjoy her first sail on Tuesday, July 16th. We were on the 11 a.m. 2 -hour Public Cruise. She LOVED it. She volunteered to raise the sails and she got the opportunity to take the wheel. […]

She said yes…And they said I do!!

What a day we had today on the Woodwind II. Not only was the weather spectacular and the winds great, but we had a wedding proposal on one of our sails and a wedding on another. I looked down from the steering wheel just in time to see Michael Casson slide down to one knee […]
