Why has this board gone stale? Vol 2

Winters on the southern Chesapeake are typically slightly warmer and with less snow than we typically see where I live in Annapolis. Most years in Annapolis you can sail until the first or second week of January before the creeks freeze up(with temperatures in the mid-40 degree range so it is somewhat sailing for the hardy) and in years when there is ice, it usually clears away by mid-February. Some years you can sail year round in 40-50 degree weather. We can get snow as late as late March.

The south Bay typically gets a lot less ice than we do because it is warmer and the water is saltier.

Regards,
Jeff
