Re: Winter Storage - City Island or Port Washington?

Sabres are nice boats.

Invest in EZ Jacks, they can be deployed from the cockpit, and when you get anchored or moored you pull them abck to the mast and inder the sail (or cover) so they are not in your way when you raise you main the next time you are out or need to. Also make sure you are heading up into the wind directly when raising the main.

If you are buy yourself and dont have an autopilot set the pedestal wheel brake and put the sail up in a p;rotected non windy area if possible.
