Re: Off Season (Nov) sailing in Northeast

Heading off sailing for an overnight in a few minutes... Current temp 23F..... That should sufficiently keep all the Sea Ray's off the bay today..

Hi Caleb
yeah when the wind is fitfull you can play the breezes which come down the river coves. RE Sandy,the boat was at a berth up Bergen point Creek....I waded in each morning and evening till full contact to adjust lines. I got one ding on the stbd toe rail in apatch that needs replacement anyway. A 37 FT powerboat broke loose during the night and drifted up creek without harming anyone....way lucky!

I've sailed under that bridge in your 2nd photo above. Then out FI Inlet and on to NYC.

Funny how the GSB can look as calm as a Mill Pond but close to shore there is a different story told. Glad that your boat also survived Sandy Oysterman! Were you on a mooring or at a dock?

Re: Off Season (Nov) sailing in Northeast

Our last sail was a week ago. Only two other sailboats to share the bay with. Pick up any mooring you want in every cove. But the nights are getting cold: 26 F last night. Hauled out on Wednesday. Lobster season opens in two weeks with pots everywhere, so its good to be on the hard now, starting the winter maintenance list.

Re: Off Season (Nov) sailing in Northeast

thanks all. I went out again today and despite the presumed high of 52 it was durned chilly to weather! Added another layer and it got toasty....need to make up a load of chowder to take out on these Nov days...that would really hit the spot. Caleb,,,Ill be better with those pictures from now on....your'e right postings arent half as much fun without them.

Re: Off Season (Nov) sailing in Northeast

We went sailing today for 4+ hours after spending last night celebrating our new Commodore at our clubs annual Ball.

Winds were steady at 10-14 from the North east and we had a nice brisk sail across the Bay to Rock Hall and back. Temps were in the low 50s. We had the propane heater going in the cabin and dtayed warm with bowls of steaming homemade chili and hot chocolate spiked with peppermint schnapps/

I love the sailing this time of the year. There were a few sailboats out and 0 powerboaters

John,

Sorry I missed you I'll be out sailing tomorrow and at Jewell Island or one of the many others tomorrow night. I suspect we'll be the only boat there...

Re: Off Season (Nov) sailing in Northeast

Our season ended a couple weeks back when the barge showed up to start dredging the river. The spoils barge and equipment barge spans almost the entire river. The only time you can get out is when they are dumping the spoils at high tide. Very small window. We wet store and normally enjoy sailing well into dec. The night sky can be amazing.

There are pictures of the damage on the shores of the Great South Bay from Sandy: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kBfG...feature=g-hist

No pics of oystermans trip on the GSB or from Jon but it would be a great time to be out sailing. Very few vessels about except commercial boats and a few stragglers heading south.
