Not me, would an ice boat count? It is -14 here with a wind chill of -40. Hell, I don't think I would even sail on an ice boat today.

Hunter 27_75-84 Wilmington, NC
Went out yesterday morning (Sunday) for an hour on the Cape Fear river, NC. Temp about 60. Have removed canvas for the winter so just motor, but charged batteries and pushed some oil around. Super nice to get out this time of year. No pics.

It is 25 degrees BELOW zero today in Minnesota. It is going to be a while before my boat touches the water. I envy you!

All day on Saturday!

We sailed all day last Saturday on Lake Texoma and were the only sail boat on the lake. It was blowing great at 20 - 25 kts and got up to 58 degrees. Beautiful! Here are my great crew.

Com-Pac 27/2 Mathews, Virginia
Despite temps in upper 40s, got out of the slip New Year's Day and had a pleasant couple of hours underway. That's the good news. The "bad news" is, the trip was to deliver her to the yard for the rest of the winter. No more sailing 'til March, at best. Just boat chores for a while; getting ready for a spring-summer trip to New England.

oday 272LE Lake Petenwell
The digital sensor crapped out at -20 something and right now it's -18. That sorta leaves out sailing, even if I could dig out the snow drift in front of the storage shed. Spring will come and launch is still March 15.

Catalina 25 Lake Worth, Texas
we almost did....

We were ON the boat, however the winds were 20, gusting to 30. The temperature was 34. With the wind-chill, we decided to save the sailing for a day where it was a little warmer....

We did, however, manage to launch my friend's Catalina 25 and not get wet. That should count for something......

Catalina 22 Scottsdale, AZ
I sailed yesterday (January 6) - it was in the upper 60s (possibly 70?) at Lake Pleasant, AZ. We hit the lake around 10:30a.m. Winds were light for the first couple of hours, but then picked up around 2:30 - 3:00.

I learned that there is still a lot that I don't know about sailing (after a couple of accidental gybes). It's time to take some lessons!

Meanwhile, here are some pictures.

Sailed on the Sea of Cortez, and saw some humpback whales!
Photos in a couple of days.
Hey Justsomeguy,

What is the story with the asym spinnaker in your avatar?
I bought a VERY similar one for my M19 ( different colors) on craigslist but the owner didn't know the manufacturer...any info would be appreciated.

(Didn't sail today but windsurfing is a possibility.)

Awesome day on the water - about 80 degrees down here yesterday. Had the boot all prepped and already to go in the morning, waiting for the afternoon breezes. However there was no wind, and I mean NO wind :( So we went for beers and reggae music at the local marina hangout. There are worse ways to spend a day!
