Re: How do you get your fix when the snow is flying

Got out last weekend on Saturday.
Air temperatures were right around 42 degrees, water temperature was 47.
Not too bad.

Re: How do you get your fix when the snow is flying

This won't get you through the entire winter, but I highly recommend participating in a Christmas light parade if you can. I'm a little late for the Marylanders with this idea - Annapolis is doing theirs tonight.

I kept the boat in long enough to participate in the Essex, CT "Trees in the Rigging" parade a couple of weeks ago. It was fun coming up with a design and decorating the boat in the weeks leading up to the parade. And when it came time for the parade, we ended up taking a share of first place in the judging!

One area where we definitely have room for improvement is the on-board party during the parade. Some of the other participants seemed to have that down to a science!

Here's a video of the parade (part of a longer promo piece that a local TV station did) You have to scroll to the 9:15 mark to see the beginning of the parade and my boat's moment in the sun (moon) starts around 10:20. Patience is the one that is decorated as a green tree with the star.

Re: How do you get your fix when the snow is flying

I am totally itchy already. It's going to be a long winter.

I do enjoy the feeling of getting caught up on projects that aren't pressured by the coming weekend or taking up time on a good sailing day. While not every year, we do go south and bareboat charter in the middle of the winter. Something to look forward to and, by the time we get back, the season is usually right around the corner.

We spend four days per week (Fri to Mon) aboard from April to October and aggressively deny weekend invites to do other things in that window. It can slightly tick some people off, but we would literally give back half the time to parties, birthdays, charity stuff, etc. So we use the winter months to get caught up.

The Buffalo Yacht Club has frost bite sailing. If you dock at RCR you can usually launch in late April and stay in the water until late November.

As with many I peruse as much boat porn as possible, repair and fabricate stuff (this winter is a new rudder) and also do this when weather permits

Sailing in the snow can be very gratifying.

Re: How do you get your fix when the snow is flying

You have my sympathy. I'm in Buffalo 5 or 6 times a year as my son goes to college there. I live in the Hudson Valley and I snowboard in the Catskill and Green Mountains. Its expensive, inconvenient,inconsistent, exciting. you get out in all kinds of crazy weather, the view is great. Not that different really.

The true answer is that we have to get out of NY and move south ASAP!
