On the Bay
How can any sane person call sailing last Sunday frostbiting? It was in the low- to-mid 60s and the water temperature was just about 45 degrees? There was even one man sailing in shorts! While all of us may be worried about global warming, it is kind of nice to have a few "warmish" days of sailing. There are sure to be some really cold days ahead for the competitors - days that will help all these rugged individuals save face. So after two Sundays of almost balmy weather, we may just have a true frostbite New Year's Regatta, full of all the elements of that first regatta so long ago that gave the moniker to this fleet of sailors.
