Is anyone in New England Sailing yet?
We actually never put the sails up, but we did deliver our boat from Boston to Martha's Vineyard last weekend. I'll post some pictures soon.

The marina where I keep my boat for the majority of the season just had their first launch today.

Anyone else start the season yet?

I'm getting there, we delivered our stinkpot from Boston to LI last year early march, that was a rough ride. Probably w/ in the next week or two.

First Saturday in May.

I am jealous.

My boat is still undercover. It's just above freezing here at night (Boston), so there is not a lot one can do on the outside. I have a few areas of "bondo" on my keel. With the cool temps, can't do that. Until I do that, can't paint bottom. Can't paint the bottom, so can't wax the boat.

It's supposed to rain this weekend, so maybe I'll change the fuel filters, drain the AF, and put in new coolant, and the new impeller.

I supposed to be one of the early birds at my marina and I'm still going in around May 4. Last year I was in on May 1.

well i have over nighted to annapolis already, but that was a few weeks ago, and about a month ago i was out having a blast under just my jib in 30 knot winds.

I am in the water in Portland, today I saw two sailboats in the harbor... and a bunch of dinghies...
My sailing season comes in two weeks...

First week in May. A little work to do between now and then.

Well...... not really Sailing. I brought my boat across the bay to Portsmouth for some hull and keel work last Saturday. Actually the sails are still in my cellar and I don't know when I'll get the boat back.... :(

Daysails small boats throughout the winter, on LI Sound.
When I had a keelboat in the water, I sailed her year round, unless there was ice.
