Sailed Today,

Right up to the mooring. Admittedly, with no traffic, 90% of the moorings empty, and a gentle breeze, it was not a great feat. I sailed on and off moorings and docks for years, but those boats were handier and much lighter. I figured it was good to learn when a mistake wouldn't sink something. I got close enough and slow enough to pick up the pennant with a boat hook. I'm pleased.
And it was a lovely day on the water.

Rock on WS! We are getting dang near 6 inches of heavy wet snow overnight and through tomorrow with rain. I envy you being able to sail right now.

Hi John,

Well done. The harbor is mostly empty now and the Columbia yard is mostly full. I unloaded all the gear from my boat today and I will be winterizing tomorrow.

I'm ready to sail with you and / or Brad anytime.

Was up on the north shore LI today. The weather and water were great. Quite a few boats were taking advantage of a rare mid November spring like day. Looks like another good day Sunday if your considering going out.

The weather up the Hudson at Nyack today was perfect for hauling our boats and pulling our moorings: little or now wind or waves, sunshine and 60 degrees of fair weather.
Tomorrow should be similar.
Wish I could keep our boat in the water for the winter but the 'river that flows both ways' (the Hudson) sometimes gets hard so we are on the hard now.
