Characters in this Story
Once a shy nine-year-old girl who loved to read adventure books, Periwinkle "Wink" Mackinzie now captains her own pirate ship! Wink is knowledgeable on the topics of ships, nautical terms, sail-rigging, and even dabbles in cartography — but all her book knowledge is put to the test on the high seas.
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.
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.
