I agree with you all, its major suckage to be taking the sails down and all that. We took the masts down the last week of October, then came out the week end after. So now she's sitting all shrink wrapped n cold. Its a hell of a way to spend 6 months.

Part of that 6 months is because the insurance companies seem to think the navigation season should be that long. Why?

I spent one winter living aboard and was still out sailing in January. As a matter of fact we crashed the Port Credit Yacht Club new years eve ball by sailing up to the visitors dock at 1am. Freaked the daylights out of them. I've been out in snow storms, and below freezing weather, always made it back ok and then enjoyed the hot rum toddies.

maybe we should be telling the insurance people to wake up n smell the coffee. Isn't this global warming thing going to increase the seasons too?

Sympathy to you all ... the travel-lifts are flat tack down here too.

So busy the yard only lets us park up for five days to do the anti-fouling.

Then its time for the splash, and another day in paradise.
