I had someone over today (Saturday) to coach on weather faxes at 1100. After he left at 1300 I looked around to steady rain mixed with light sleet and scattered snow. Docks weren't too bad. I did have a client call (by dinghy) at 1500 which wasn't a lot of fun but it was a quick stop to install some bits that shipped in this morning.

I'm a big fan of practicing skills and today's winds weren't bad once you get out of the slip but the cold and precipitation would be no fun at all.

Anyone planning to go out today and calling it good conditions can't read a weather forecast much less a synoptic. Not good judgment.

sail fast and eat well, dave
