beautiful day for a sail
Jul 22, 2014 by: Momma L from Syosset, New York
So glad we took this sail. Purchased tickets the day before, but could have waited until the day of. Beautiful sunny day. Everyone was very friendly. The crew had some passengers assist with the sails. They gve a bit of info about the workings of the ship, and of the area. Veryprofessional. Mike was very articulate and personable. They served beverages and snacks. No pressure to buy additional items. Great way to spend an afternoon.

We had some friends in, so we decided to take the Woodwind. It was a lot of fun, altought the 2 hour sail is over all too quickly. The crew was great, very friendly and very professional. Their dock staff could use some customer service training. They were very brusk and almost hostile, espiciallyy making sure that everyone lined up the way they wanted... they must have worked for the airlines.... Once we were on the boat, thing were great! I'd certainly recommend it!
Really a Class Act!

First of all, I was made to feel extremely welcome and quite safe. Jennifer, owner and captain, created a fantastic evening on the water. It was Wednesday night, which is race night on the Chesapeake. All the boats were out, the water was beautiful and the sky was striking! I highly recommend this excursion for ANYONE. It is a great way to see Annapolis, the Sailing Capitol of the World.
HAD A WONDERFUL NIGHT ON THE WATER !

Last evening had a spur of the moment experience that I will always remember. I walked up to the ticket counter and they had one ticket left for the Schooner Woodwind sail boat ! It was Wed. and "race night" so our boat raced against another Schooner Woodwind and we watched all the other boat races ! The captain Ken was fabulous explaining a lot of the sailing techniques that he and his crew were doing ... and even had some "fish jokes". HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS EXPERIENCE !
Annapolis boat trip

2 hour sail on a three masted ship, hope that is the correct description of the ship. Left at 4pm from the dock at the Marriot Hotel on Ego Alley, 40$ for Sr. fare. 42.00 reg. on a Sunday. Sailed out towarsd Kent Island and The Bay Bridge. I think our Captain was Jan, not sure but was excellant very engaging and informative. Alot of experience. People were able to assist her in steering the boat, fun. With your ticket comes water or soda 1 ea. Beer wine are available for purchase for about 5-6$. A small snack is also include, chips, doritos, freetos etc. Weater was a lillte rough but no problem one lady on the earlier cruise got a little light headed and they had a cream that you put on behind your ear and she was fine. Did this instead of the other boat rides beacause it was 2 hrs, vs 90mins. to the Light House or Kent Island. Will do it again next year. They also have special cruises so check the web site.
