Geography Makes a Big Difference
I use to feel that way when I lived in New England...even at that I didn't come out till Veteran's Day Nov 15th or so. But here on the Chesapeake, the boat stays in the water year round. I have had great sailing every month. There are many days in the winter that the temperature is in the 50's with a medium breeze. Most other people pull their boats so no one else is out on the water. That is the cure for the winter blues.
