EJO Do I only wish I had a dodger and a cabin heater then I could have her in 2 more months besides the 6 to 7 now.
I'm not sure about this dinghy sailing in <35 degree F water your survival time when wet is to short in my opinion.

Dress for skiing, other than footwear and get some of those fingerless gloves that have a "swing away" mitten fingertip cover.

smurphny Temperature on Lake Champlain tonight: -10 F. The water is becoming much too hard to sail without an ice boat. Have been looking at plans for one of those. With little snow this year there may be some good ice boating. IDNIYRA Class Plans

Boy, you SoCal types are a bunch of pussies. Come up here and we can go out when it's zero (C) and blowing 30 - the sailing is great if you have a dodger and good cabin heat.

Hey, I think I know that guy.
Actually the air temperatures this last weekend were in the 40's. About 10 degrees warmer than the last time we went out. The problem this weekend was that the shore line had plenty of ice in it. We thought it was thin and would break right away, but it wasn't. We had to launch the dinghy from the farthest point away from land that we could.
On the row out to the mooring can was more ice after the brief period of open water, but this ice was very thin and the dinghy went right through it.
Once on board it was a very nice January sail. My first ever in the midwest.
I kept on wondering, "Hey where is everybody? It's a nice day for a sail!"
I know; Crazy Bastard.
