Well, we made it to 2013 in total defiance of the Mayan calendar. As you see this is issue #1 as I start my own calendar, predicting that the end of the world will not happen until after, at least this coming September.
We have had a good amount of snow in Deerfield so all of you skiers should be happy.
Myself, I think I will look for a set of poles in the barn and hopefully get in some cross country skiing. That would be a good chance for some much needed exercise.
After the first of the year the rest of the year moves fast for me. In a couple of weeks we have the annual Southern Cross boat owners meeting, followed by Eagle fest in Newburyport, followed by the boat, and sport shows, bringing us right into March. After March the winter might as well be over and the boats will be in the water shortly after that for the first week of May.
There has been quite a bit of interest in my family hands on sailing adventure this Christmas, so I am going to keep the money saving coupons up for a while longer for those who would like to take advantage of them Check out the brochure for the family sailing adventure
The family hands on sailing adventure is a great way to spend time as a family learning sailing skills without the expense of owning a boat. Check it out.
Don't forget to check the friends of Captain Ed's web pages especially my brother Franks art studio
' located in the Joannes fabric building 122 Western Avenue, downtown Lowell. They are having open studios this Saturday as well as the first Saturday of each month through out the year. This is a great way to shop local.
Captain Ed's Sailing was very successful this year with just about 50 days of sailing under our belts, and meeting and sailing with many great people.
I want to again thank everyone for their support of Captain Ed's Sailing if it is even just through reading my news letters.
Thanks Captain Ed's Sailing
Captain Ed's Sailing gets more popular each year, however there are always great weekends as well as weekdays available.
At the end of the day you walk away from the boat and leave the cost of owning and maintaining the boat up to me.
