First Frost this week, summer 2011 no show!

Well, wasn,t my best year. Plenty of wind and rain but little sunshine for comfortable cruising.
Did get a few rough trips in but always seemed to be chaseing very tight weather windows.
Might get a late run round the Skerries Islands tomorrow to dry out the sails before stripping them off.
Hope your faired better and thanks for shareing. Keeps the dream alive when I see other SNers are making hay!
Now were,s that list of lay up projects, sure I had it 2009

Safe sailing

Sorry to hear about your weather woes. We had a surprisingly good year this year. Mostly moderate winds, and the rain was also very co-operative and left us alone on planned sailing days. We started our longest regatta of the season with only a few drops on deck which quicly blew dry when the sun came out. Broad reach for almost the whole trip.

As to the lay-up list.... could you post a copy of yours as mine seems to have gone AWOL as well.
