Is there anyone up in the NW or NE of the USA or Northern Europe and possibility the Great lakes, doing any winter sailing??
The frostbiters I know do something similar to that. They sail through December and then start again in March.I sailed my Melonseed in Dec.
When it gets up to 45 I'll do it again. The Yawl is out of the water, the ketch is in Fl. Next season I'll sail the ketch in winter, as I've one in the past on the yawl. But I can't go out if the harbor freezes, and I won't go out if the wind is over 15, or the temp under 40.
I met a guy at a Baykeeper dinner recently who said "I know you, you're that guy that sails in the winter"
That's crazy, already frozen. I bet it wasn't frozen 2 weeks ago was it? Erie is freezing quickly now too because of the few days of single digits. Erie was completely open a week ago, now it's 80% iced over, and the lake effect snow has stopped, but not before two squalls dropped anywhere from 2-4 feet south of us, we got maybe a foot.
Is that a shot of that weird black trimaran in False Creek?
