The Texas gulf sailing season is just starting. In the summer it's just too hot and the winds are to light to sail - the winter here is in the 60/70's and the breeze picks up considerably.

From a left coaster; I haven't sailed in two weeks! We have had bad weather. Winds 30 knots and some rain. Rain predicted for this weekend too. Well, I can always sail over Thanksgiving.

No show summer this year on our East coast, then again its the Irish Sea not the Pacific thats outside the breakwater.
Keep my boat in the harbour all year and you never know what weather any weekend will bring round here. Take the sails down when theres hard frost about but that usualy come after Christmas.
I,v been out day sailing in December and don,t mind comeing back in in the dark now the harbour light is working again.
Well wrapped agus kept warm on the inside with a nip of the oul Jameson, it shortens the winter conciderably.
Not looking too bad for this weekend and the forecast is for a mild few weeks ahead.
Safe sailing

Here in SF our season begins New Year’s Day and ends Dec 31st. Our first weekend cruise was in the beginning of March and in the middle of a big storm (real victory at sea stuff). We then had good sailing in the spring. Our boat was down for the most of the summer while we replaced the stem fitting. Then I had some family commitments which further kept us away from the water. We did our final overnight cruise of the season last weekend and had rain overnight but a glorious sail back to our marina on Sunday. What a way to bookend the season. You know, some seasons you sail a thousand miles or more and other years only a hundred. But, somehow it all works out.
