No storms are predicted in the near future, however we did get pounded in February last year, so lets keep our fingers crossed that it doesn't happen again.
For those of you that did get clobbered last week, to bad we missed that one up here in Salisbury, Ma, we didn't get a flake. I did have a chance to drive along the beach and witness a spectacular aftermath of the storm at high tide with a full moon. Powerful stuff.
Sunny days with actual heat glaring through your windshield will bring in the calls for sailing lessons and charters for this summer.
DR, John Savage has already arranged for me to go down to Savannah the first week of March to work on Ker Mor to get her ready to hopefully sail to Miami Beach, FL so I am very excited to start thinking of an early spring. I'll get down to the boat a few days before him to get the boat ready, though with the attention that she has received the last few years it should be short work to have her ready to go. Make sure to follow the trip on Facebook for up to the minute post of our trip.
This coming week 5,6,7 I will be down in Newport, RI for the annual Southern Cross Boat Owners Rendezvous, where we will spend three days talking about our favorite boats. On Sunday (Super Bowl Sunday, if that matters any more). We have a trip planned as a group to the Herreshoff Marine Museum
in Bristol, RI. That should be interesting, the inside of my boat is a Herreshoff design, I think it is a one of a kind.
So we keep trudging towards spring, it is not far away, the boats will be in the water in a couple of months and we will be sailing again hopefully early this year. In the mean time I am still working on getting a seaman ship class going probably the first week of April.
This is probably a good time to reserve your spots for family sails as well as sailing lessons with Captain Ed.
