Yes, we are getting a good lick of snow, but I figure it will be fine after Christmas
Just a bit warmer, then. I'll take a broom and shovel. I went out 2 days ago and it was a fine day. A bit cold, but lovely.
I made a rather long post on my blog, below, regarding winter sailing and partial winterization. Sail Delmarva: Search results for winter sailing
. Some of this is about the boat, but more of it is about the sailor, what works, and where the challenges are. The most important thing, I think, is to see it as a different thing than summer sailing, with different rewards. It's more contemplative and less decadent.
I do like decadence, really. The hot chocolate we take is fairly decadent, right up there with a dip in the pool, but different.
Happy winter! I will be happy if I can encourage just one person to keep sailing in the winter.
