Happy New Year

Or as they say down here in South Texas, Años Nuevos prósperos.
We are down here in Corpus Christi on the boat for a few days - all of you up there shoveling snow, come on down. It's sundown, so it's cooled down to about 70 degrees, were about walk over to the pavilion and have a drink with the other sailors.

We are heading down to Port Aransas to spend New Years on our boat. Happy New Years to all.

Difference between a power boater and a sailor out on the water: A power boater is going some place special, a sailor is already there.

I'll Second the Motion

Happy New Year to everyone.

You folks in the Southern States realize that you are making the rest of us incredibly jealous, don't you?

Took a sailing buddy out for a day sail, today. Not so warm. Minus 2C when we got to the boat. It was so freakin' cold that the dock lines were frozen.

For folks familiar with Vancouver, we had a nice trip up to the Buntzen Lake power station in Indian Arm. Light outflow winds, sunny and clear. The snow on the mountains was spectacular.

Bundling up made the cold bearable. Yeah, we were both happy campers! Yes, Virginia, there is winter sailing in Vancouver!

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

We're off to Bowen Island for New Year's Eve with our club... I think the cabin heat's going to get a workout!

Happy New Year everyone!
