Re: What are your Seasonal Sailing Milesones?

Trinidad & Eastern Caribbean. Sometimes it’s even hotter than normal. We mark seasons by the beginning & end of hurricane season. The mile stone is finding insurance coverage since most have dropped the Caribbean even if you haul outside of the zone.

Work day is 5 AM till 8 and 3:30 till 6, dark.

Re: What are your Seasonal Sailing Milesones?

Long Island here...... in the water and staying on the boat every weekend starting mid April..... late May we are doing weekends out of the harbor, July take 3 weeks east and again late August/early September.... boat still in water and is being pulled later this week. Since we got the new boat with heat it has extended our season dramatically. Though we find heat works much better in fall due to the fact the water is still warm.....

Racing season is just kicking off here in Mexico; the temps are coming down from barely tolerable to wonderful and the air-conditioner is about to be stowed.

The big Bruce anchors and the chain are in the dockbox. The diver has cleaned the bottom again and tomorrow he'll wax the topsides (but that's just for looks).

One by one the crew have drifted back into town and stopped by to check in, and they each inspected the results of our summer's work. I have to say it's generally nods of approval I see as they stand on the dock and stroke their chins scanning the new hardware, running rigging, and fresh deck paint.

We've tested everything that can be tested, even the new navigator has been doing his navigation exercises with the tablet computer. Now we just need to get out of the berth and shake out the cobwebs.

Weds well put on supplies of beer and water and see if this ole' girl can still go.

Yahoo, it's sailing season again in Mexico

Oh just shush you’re killing me :-)

Special knowledge can be a terrible disadvantage if it leads you too far along a path that you cannot explain anymore.
