Winter Sailing 2011-2012

Went for a sail on Sunday. Hugo (HugoSalt on SN) went out on his boat too, and we took pictures of each other's boats. Enjoy.

The boat was lit up by the sun in this picture.

The sun was setting as we sailed.

This one might be my favorite.

We managed to get the Christmas lights up and connected to the inverter. (Think spinnaker halyard tied to the midpoint, zip ties onto the backstay and onto an ad-hoc removable forestay.)

It was pretty festive.

Goals for this winter:
1) Sail every week until the ice get's too thick.
2) Sail to CT for a weekend. (Targeting the weekend after New Years.)
3) Fly the asym
Anyone else getting out?

Re: Winter Sailing 2011-2012

I sail all year round, and every chance I get, summer or winter. Sailing at night when it's below freezing can be "chilly" Thank God for Goretex. Note to self: be sure and buy that neoprene ski mask

The ocean is especially beautiful in winter.
