Over the past 15 years I have had several memorable sailing experiences. These are the stories of the travels and adventures of Woodwind, Perlita and Emmeline.
"Woodwind" - an Alberg 30, a small keelboat, built predominantly of fiberglass, with wood trim. It has a masthead sloop rig, a keel-mounted rudder and a fixed long keel. It displaces 9,000 lb (4,082 kg) and carries 3,300 lb (1,497 kg) of iron ballast. Built in 1966 at Whitby Boat works in Ontario.
We purchased Woodwind in 1999 from Len and Katie who had sailed her to the Chesapeake and to the Bahamas.
A dramatic change from the fuel guzzling 38' powerboat to a 30' sailboat
