New Year's Day Sailing Tradition

Is it a tradition to sail on New Year's Day? If so, does anyone know why or what's the history?

No it's not. The noise of the wind beating against the sails makes my head hurt. If you are capable of raising a sail on NYD then you didn't try hard enough on NYE (to get pished as a parrrot that is).

There is a tradition in the Navy that the first entry in the Deck Log for the new year be written as a poem. Some ships still do it but I don't think we are creative now as we used to be. Not sure about the sailing part but if the conditions are nice it sounds good to me.


Here is a link about the poems.

Well we go sailing every year then sit in the hot tub and take a dip in the pool. Ok we spend New Years Eve at a Yatch club sail home and as for the pool & hot tub they are heated and we live in FL.
