Sailing one night this week -- Long Island NY
As you may know, we have our Beneteau 50 in the water this winter. We've been sailing most weekends, NY and CT. And I've done some sails during the week.

Last weekend I was enjoying the frozen, crystalized version of water up in VT. The weekend before I was installing the webcam on the boat instead of enjoying her. So I need a make up session.

If anyone is interested in going out for a daysail after work, let me know by PM.

Hows the ice around the docks with the 8 degree weather ?

Very good question Tom. I intend to check as soon as I can. I'm not worried about the slip, since there are ice eaters every other slip that work well so far.

Once the fairway gets iced-over my season will need to pause for a bit. Our slip opens onto the narrow "inlet" into the back part of the harbor. There's tidal current flowing through it, so I'm optimistic.

Brad, Sent you pm...I will be close to G.C. tomorrow, if time allows?? I will try to take a look at the creek and report. Might be some commercial traffic that could help keep things open. Hugo
