I'm with you! We love to sail, but we have other interests in winter.
My family just got back from skiing and snowboarding(daughter skis, wife son and I snowboard). We're never far from the ocean or the boat here on the coast of Maine. But I enjoy the off season doing other things, I like the break.
We can see Penobscot Bay from the chair lift of our ski area, just 4 miles away so winter is a time I think about sailing. I walk by the boat almost daily walking the dogs around the harbor. I like to see it safely under tarps, waiting for spring.
We've spent a couple of winters cruising in warm waters. I'll admit I didn't miss those winters years ago, but I think as a family we may these days.
If I didn't enjoy winter in a place like Maine, to take advantage of what it offers in other forms of recreation and enjoyment, then it would be an unpleasant life for me. I'd have to move.
Both seasons are too short for me.
