Re: 2013 Sailing Season
I've been able to get out approximately once every two weeks since mid-February. It helps that I've got a flexible work schedule and have been able to catch the (few) good days we've had when they occurred. Yesterday was just grand. I really enjoy getting out early in the season, when there's no motor-boat traffic. It's also nice not to hear other machinery like the dreaded leaf blowers and such. We heard a loon call on the Severn during a daysail in February.
I'm also going to try rigging various self-steering combinations - my boat often sails herself upwind, but not always. I've used a setup similar to Bubblehead's (but run through the normal sheet block) to go downwind.
