I was just wondering if you can sail while it's snowing? I guess you can, but curious how you would do it?
It's really no different than sailing in light drizzle, just be more careful of the footing. Once, in a place called Snow Pass, N/W of Ketchikan Alaska,
I was on deck drinking a beer (Bud) and Brandy (Paul Masson). It, in the space of two hours, first rained lightly, then sleeted, than hailed, and then snowed. It did this three times. I stayed on deck the entire time because I had never seen weather like this before, nor have I since. It was really an experience I will never forget. The wind never increased, backed, or veered. It was eerie.
Sailing can be done in nearly any weather. Hell, I have sailed in steady 80 kts in Alaska before, and I'd tell you about willywaws, but they'd just say it is another "Tall Story." You have to go there to believe it.
