Barry, your always welcome aboard WS. I'm thinking the local guys should try a gathering on board for winter sailing.
Carl, I love night sailing. I do prefer it in warm weather though. Also, my wife hopes I'll be home at night. Almost certainly will sail again tomorrow.

We went out with a very old friend was visiting, yesterday. Alas, there was no wind. Just clouds and flat calm.

On the up side, we enjoyed each other's company. Our friend is a fellow sailor who keeps his boat on Kootenay Lake, in the BC Interior. So we had a lot of laughs and some additional memories.

If nothing else, we proved that a bad day on a boat truly is better than a good day at the office.

It's not my fault they named a movie after our boat

Just took my sister and her family out for their first sail - November in Canada!

8 degrees C and about 15-20kn of SE wind and 3 foot swells.

Not the BVIs, but warm pants, a toque and a cup of cocoa made for a great day!

Anybody else keep sailing through the winter?

I'm hoping to go out for a day sail in the Chesapeake next weekend, Nov. 20. But of course, the Chesapeake in central Virginia in late November is not quite the same as British Columbia in late November!

Yes, I sail year round. Generally I consider it a good day if it's over 45f and sunny. I prefer gentle breezes in winter.
