“Cadette Girl Scout Troop 5891 and 5859 of Ashburn, VA, had a fabulous time sailing aboard the Woodwind II! Not only did the girls learn the basics of sailing, our troop leader was able to check off an item off her bucket list!”
“Thanks so much for a wonderful time on our recent Woodwind adventure! Our Girl Scout troop learned so much about sailing and the Moms had a ball. Your crew is amazing!”
Girl Scout Troop 1017
