Re: Fall sailing! Brrr

We have a Canadian Thanksgiving outing coming up this weekend.. forecast is not too bad at this point. It's a long weekend at a marina 18 NM away. We had a beautiful sail last Sunday - still Ts, shorts and barefeet even with a nice breeze - at the end of September!

Re: Fall sailing! Brrr

Little blowy and chilly today to start but, things calmed down in the afternoon. Going to be heading to Oyster Bay Oyster Festival for one final cruise in a few weeks. That is if a good weather window develops and the Nor' Easters stay away. At least that's the plan.

Re: Fall sailing! Brrr

I am in Massachusetts and will sail right up to October 31, unless I can get on a frostbiting crew again this winter. Saturday I am crewing on a Hinkley for a delivery from South West Harbor, ME to Portsmouth RI.

Maybe it's time to start heading south Denise, Southwest Florida is really quite lovely in the winter except, perhaps, for a week or two in mid- to late January. No?

"It is not so much for its beauty that the sea makes a claim upon men's hearts, as for that subtle something, that quality of air, that emanation from the waves, that so wonderfully renews a weary spirit."

Re: Fall sailing! Brrr

Denise,

It was just 38-degrees f on my back deck yesterday morning - a temperature much lower than my age. My policy, since I turned 60, which was 14 years ago, was to try not to expose my body to a temperature lower than my age. Seems like South Florida is the place to be headed this time of year. Unfortunately, I have too many commitments this fall and winter and will not be headed south till January, and I'll be driving there as fast as legally possible. C'mon down to Marathon Key this winter and sing with an old man at the tiki bars and marinas - it's sure nice to be warm.

Cheers,

Gary
