Pretty cold right now... I find that as long as it stays above 45 deg F (7C) that I can stay warm... Anything below that gets pretty uncomfortable.

I'm sure you would have your pick of boats to sail on if you come to visit, Giu!

It was 42 F that day with 12-18 knots of wind so it was rather cool. The kids were colder than I since they had no rain gear so they went and hid in the house for a while. I had 'em squealing when we jumped a tanker wake at 7+. It was fun.

Charlie,

You could come down here the first saturday in april. You'd fit in just fine with my twin sons, both are 5'16", but a bit lighter than you at 180 or there abouts! May need another crew or two for that race! Oh yeah, just as scraggaly as you too! Maybe more so!

Then about 7 pm coming across teh ferry from Kingston to edmonds on easter, it was 40F with winds from 20-30 knots! Even had teh walla walla bouncing a bit!

Marty

At this time, depending upon wind, probably winchers more than anything. Not sure if the chute will get flown or not. Most I believe do NFS vs FS. But considering how long, ie about 18 miles, would prefer to be in a FS, so somewhere along the line, an assymetric will need to get put up, with litlle experience from any crew. It seems like I have to let go of the tiller and go up there to setup and get flying initially. Altho boyz are gettting better at it. Forget admiral for going up there at the dock much less when you are bouncing around! I keep thinking there is some sort of party, or auction, as it is a fund raising even for a local charity in Ballard.

This weekend I am on a Islander 40 in Lk washington.

Alex better come out here from about may to september at latest, not sure he would enjoy sailing in just above to below freezing temps!:B:B:B:B:B With water spray at 40F no less too!

Marty

I'm hoping to get more sailnetters out here on the water with me. It'd be nice to put faces to handles and make it easier to arrange meets and cruises.

Sure Jody, we can go out again, just pick a day. Stillraining, your boat still on the jacks? You can come out for a sail too, seeing as you're just down the road.

Marty, I don't know what's up with that weekend yet but I might take ya up on it. What time is dock call and where? Are ya using a tacker with the Asym and are ya doing inside or outside gybes?

Online most do and I do not bother addressing it because: regardless, if I do it once - I'll have to do it 30 more times which gets tiresome...but that explains some of the "got a pic - you sound cute PMs"
