Late Season Sail and Swim

Hey,

Here in the North East we have had a great stretch of weather. Unseasonably warm, and with a decent breeze too. In my marina, may boats have been hauled already, with lots more getting hauled every day.

I usually stay in the water until November. With the great weather I decided to go sailing Sunday. I got on the boat around noon and headed out. The bottom of the boat had a moderate amount of growth, and the weather was so warm that I decided to go for a swim and scrub it. The water was about 67 degrees (according to the transducer INSIDE the boat) and didn't feel too cold. The visibility was about the best I've ever seen on the sound, around 10' Anyway, the bottom wasn't too bad and the prop only had a few barnacles.

After spending 45 minutes on the bottom I had a quick lunch and then sailed for about two hours. The boat sailed better and I was very happy.

Swimming in October, that's a new one for me!

Sounds great Barry. We still have a couple months to go here on the Chesapeake with the fall sailing very beautiful here last weeked as it was on the LI Sound.

We are planning our annual trip for next year to come up and stay at Port Jefferson on our way and hope we can get together next year. We may be commandeering a few sailnet boats with us if I can twist some arms.

If the trip is in July or later it won't take much twisting. Rhythm is planning a trip north in 2012.

As long as you planned to swim Barry! I've spilled my canoe sailing off season (wetsuit). And I've had to swim to set an anchor (shallower here than I thought!) in May.
If there's to be a gathering at Port Jeff, I'm in.
