Long Island - Sailing through the winter again

After some keel and bottom work, our boat will be going back in the water soon. We are keeping her in Port Washington with a trip or two to Stamford CT and many afternoon sails locally.

Really looking forward to sailing through the winter. If anyone wants to go for a sail, please let me know.

I know WanderingStar help get me on the water one winter when my boat was on land; I'm returning the favor to others.

Regards,
Brad

Crazy(?) Too

I too will be able to sail through the winter. I am using a 21' oday out of Oyster Bay. So if you ever head east toward Lloyd pt. we may cross paths. We will be the small boat with 3 guys huddled around the tiller, clutching a cup of hot rum like a life line.
But the alternative of not sailing for 3-4months is much more depressing. I know some people get seasonal light disorder. I get SAD (Sailing Absent Disorder). I want to start a lobbying to get the medical community to officailly recognize this condition. Maybe I can get my insurance company to pay for my dock fees.

Hi Guys,

My boat got hauled last Tuesday, and I unloaded the gear and winterized the water system today

So, if you guys want a hand, please let me know.

John, I could be available mid week on short notice, so don't be shy about sending me an email, text, or calling.

Barry

hey everyone,

i'm by huntington bay and my boat is under a tarp for the winter, but i'd love to get out on the water. i'm new to the forum and also still a little bit of a greenhorn at sailing but i'm no stranger to the water and if worse comes to worse i can swim like a champ .

if any fellow Long Islanders need winter crew for daysailing I'd be most happy to lend a hand!

Jay

Getting underway today, by noon I think.
"Sailing Absent Disorder". I call it landsickness, the discomfort one feels from staying too long on solid ground.

Hey, it's Captain Dave. Spent 1/1/11 with you and had a great sail to Stamford for lunch. Would love to do it again in 012. Big bonfire planned for New Years Eve... so it may not be 1/1/12. Will try to line up another time. Happy Thanksgiving, Merry Christmas, Happy New Year and may you keep wind in your sails.

Re: Long Island - Sailing through the winter again

Brad, where did you end up going for your haul out and repair work ? I'm up for a sail sometime. Hope you and the family are well.
