Characters in this Story
Harriet is by far the boldest and most confident Windward crew member. Her self-assured nature and leadership skills give rise to some conflict as the girls navigate their roles. She'd really like to be Captain, but Harriet is tasked as Quartermaster — a role she learns to value highly in the end.
Val is the ship's Boatswain - the officer in charge of the equipment and the crew. This role suits Val perfectly as she's a natural peacekeeper — loyal, protective, and capable of keeping the Windward and its crew ship-shape.
Martha is the nurturer of the Windward crew. Her sweet disposition, desire to care for others, and love of food make her the perfect person to take on the role of the ship's Cook.
