You might want to pause for a week or two. If it's 47F in Florida, it's cold everywhere north.

Looks like we'll get a little break this weekend, more cold next week, and finally seasonable temperatures thereafter.

Re: 2018 Sailing Season on the Chesapeake

About 15 degrees C yesterday, maybe 8 knots of wind. We had a nice 2 hour sail around Nanaimo Harbour and out to a couple of the 5 anchored freighters outside the harbour, they park on our side of the straight until they are called into the Port of Vancouver. There were a few seals, lots of sea birds, several fishermen, some power boaters, and half a dozen other sailors. The boat really likes to get out in the off season...as do we. Today we are in rain again.

Even if you come up in April, you're going to have to wear long pants in the Annapolis area. We'll be warmer but not "bikini warm."
Tuesday is predicted to be anything from rain, to 8 inches of snow. No joke. You think you're frustrated? Just kill me now.

Re: 2018 Sailing Season on the Chesapeake

We got about an inch of snow yesterday, which has since melted, but today, at 11:30 a.m. it's just 39 degrees on my deck. Damned that's too cold for an old codger.
