    5 F here night before last. All the way up to 30 today & back to single digits this weekend - so - no.

    No sailing, but the skiing was great today!
    I was born on a wooden boat that I built myself.

    Good on you, Tim. We're taking Trondra out tomorrow, but it's a bit warmer here.

    Ha, no that was posted from the warm confines of my office. I didn't go sailing yesterday. I just really wanted to go sailing. It's still a bit cold here.

    I managed to get out for a couple of hours on Monday. It was a good opportunity to try fine-tuning my "jib and jigger" tactics. Marianita is not as balanced as I hoped in this configuration, the jib overpowers the mizzen pretty quickly and tacking can be a bit hit-or-miss so having a relatively quiet harbor to mess around in was nice.

    I motored into 20kts and rain for 7 hours from Poulsbo to Tacoma a few weeks ago. It was enough to convince me that Feb is for working on the boat, maybe March is for sailing.
