This varies a great deal.

December has some nice sailing, though!

Also, I don't know if this is unique to our area or not, but a lot of people that keep their boats on the Bay come from far elsewhere. For example, boats in my marina are owned by people that live in Texas and they fly in every now and then for some sailing. A LOT of people in Annapolis drive in from Philly and other parts of PA. Once it starts getting cold, the odds of making the trek to experience sucky weather get higher, so why not winterize and come back next spring?
My last policy had no restrictions.

This one requires me to be "laid up, not available for immediate use" from 12/1 to 12/15. However, the definition does NOT mean I need to be out of the water. I have this in writing, as odd as it seems. So, I disconnected a few things, did some winterizing, and will not be out those 2 weeks.

You're right about that KJ. Funny that we were about 30' from each other

We just got back from a great weekend in Deep Creek Lake in Western MD. Friday we woke to about 4" of SNOW! I see skiing in my near future .

Looks like this coming weekend may be a winner for another sail? Um, maybe Fairlee Creek...

I was 1 of 5 sailboat on the south river today! Went for a quick sail to work on some rigging issues and had a good time. The wind was ok! Only went out for about 4 hours so I didn’t get to see much of the Bay. Man I need to learn how to sail! I mean I can get to where I want to go with np its that on the track back up the south river I could not for the life of me catch up to this other boat! Yeah a nice day for sure!
