You have to eat nails for breakfast to sail year round where Faster is moored!
So THATS why the milk in my breakfast cereal turns rusty......
C'mon Kermie you need to toughen up a bit! Quit cruising at 15 knots under power and the wind chill comes down some!
Seriously, there's not a month we don't get out for at least a weekend, and we have a tradition recently of doing New Years Eve out with our club. You do have to dress for it, the rainy days are chilly but certainly bearable, a dodger is pretty much a necessity as is cabin heat. As to the gales, well, we get better sailing conditions in winter than summer as far as winds go.
Get yourself a real boat
and you could join us too!!
