Ten Degree Rule

Ya, chilly up here…. Some discussion about the too-cold-to-sail rules…. It’s been said that anything below 10F isn’t kosher but these days that seems like more of a guideline than a rule…

Depending on conditions (wind strength, sun, humidity, time of day) it seems as though there is some wiggle room- As in wiggle your fingers, wiggle your toes….

We sailed yesterday in breeze and zero F and it was do-able!

Stay tuned- Registration tonight- Get a move on folks!

  1. As a prospective newbie ( ocean sailor looking for winter sailing ) I always wonder where you guys are talking about – I’d like to come and view the action.

    Perhaps all posts could include a location?
