I am in the water in Portland, today I saw two sailboats in the harbor... and a bunch of dinghies...
My sailing season comes in two weeks...
Were's your slip, zaliasvejas?

A few boats were out on the CT River this past Sunday.
The wind was howling too much to go out on the Sound.

Boats in the water, took the shrink wrap off yesterday and started the engine, changed oil, etc. Should be able to take it out next weekend.

Bottom's done, davits installed, I'm taking off the cover tomorrow, and we splash this week. Teak decking gets installed in cockpit this week or next, and then we pretty much are ready to go! I figure we actually will get underway and hoist some sail the weekend of April 18, if all goes as expected. Then I'm out of pocket for a few weeks as I start an arbitration hearing (which most inconveniently has been scheduled during sailing season).

You're all doing great. If I recall correctly, I used to shoot for may 1 when I hauled in the winter. That boat was small and simple, easy to prep.

And its coming fast. I want to make it but fear I'll need another week to do finish getting ready. Hope to see the Volvo racers from the water.

Same position as jarcher. Bunch of projects to finish up under the cover so looking at mid to late May. You know what I will be working on today.

I'm hoping for mid May. I have a pile of work to do under cover before I splash, so the race is on!

I know of a few boats in the water, but I don't think any of them have actually been sailing yet.
