Winter Sailing in Western Long Island Sound

Sunday January 9th 2011
Brad, David and Hugo on Brad's Beneteau 50,
great day even with freezing spray and icy decks.
Favorite shot of the day...sundown with New York City
in bkgd.

Day started out with thawing lines and removing ice from deck,
and...Brad diving to checks his zincs! Water about 40f give or take.
Spent most of day with double reef main and patch of reefed
headsail as was gusting to around 35 knots. After sunset temp
dropped enough for spray to freeze.
For the observant, we were not trying to BBQ between the gusts
and did secure shortly after photo session!
Did not see another boat on the water.
Anyone else out there this winter in Long Island Sound.
Hugo
