Re: Sailing Weather?
The weather is starting to turn a little, but the water temp is still 40F. Call me a wimp, but I prefer not to sail my little boat in conditions where overboard survivability is so short. I generally prefer water 60F or higher, but may stretch it to 55F this year.
I do have a harness on order, so maybe using that I can be more flexible about cold water.
On our river the water gets into the 80s mid-summer. That's a little higher than I like, and leads to other water quality issues.
