We’re getting in the last few day-sails of the year now, and I really do feel like we’re sailing on borrowed time. I haul the boat in the first week of December, but we’re going to squeeze a little more sailing out of the year up to that point. Today was so beautiful. . .
We passed a lovely old yawl with wooden spars – a new resident on the creek – on our way out to open water.
The weatherman called for 70 degrees today, but I don’t think we made it that far. It was certainly colder on the water. I was glad I wore my heavy fleece sweater, and wished I’d worn gloves. It was 55 degrees on the water, winds 10-15 knots. We were a little over-powered without a reef, but I let it go. Cay of Sea was moving well and I didn’t think the wind was going to build (it didn’t). A number of other boaters had the same idea today – there was quite a bit of activity on the water.
