End of the sailing season

It's curtains down on another sailing season in India as we brace for the monsoon rains. Four to five months of withdrawal symptoms ahead.

Re: End of the sailing season

We are just coming out of hibernation up here.

Why can't you sail for 5 months? Surely the monsoons aren't always there?

Re: End of the sailing season

I suspect that knowing the monsoons will arrive, but never exactly when, makes it impossible to keep a boat in the water.

Or perhaps it is 4-5 months of: Rain - RAIN - rain - are the clouds clearing? - RAIN!!! and OMG! is it raining!! then start again with: Rain

Kinda like the UK, but the food has flavor!

Here in BC if we didnt sail in the rain we would hardly ever get out. Fortunately it still allows us to sail year round with a descent set of foulies

Re: End of the sailing season

I suspect that monsoon rain is to BC rain like BC rain is to drizzle . In Thailand , way too wet, way too hot and as rough as nasty. I'll take a wet sou' easter in the Salish Sea any day.(enclosed cockpit and wood stove included)

Well it rains nearly every day once the monsoon starts in earnest, and the weather gets very rough.

Our little sailing club has only open dinghies, so there's no cover either.
