Plan? What plan?
“The Plan” has always been subject to review. But, this is a pretty serious potential change.
As the heat, humidity, and Covid-19 case count has been climbing here in South Carolina, staying here has become far less attractive. The climate is challenging to say the least. Yesterday, I got out of an air conditioned car and my sunglasses immediately fogged up!! What’s up with that??
And, to be perfectly honest, I am running out of boat chores and starting to get a bit bored!
I did a bit of price comparison, and found that long term storage for Morpheus in a couple of the boatyards in CT. and RI. is actually cheaper that down here. That came as a big surprise. Those same boatyards are visited often by folks that I know and so Morpheus checkups would be easy.
So yes, I am thinking about going sailing again!!
The most significant reason NOT to sail North is the fact that this virus situation makes getting crew a non starter. So, I’d be making the trip solo. Even so, the “normal” weather conditions make it a downwind trip in light to moderate winds. And, I can break the trip up into three or four segments.
I change my mind back and forth about this every day so standby for a final decision sometime between now and Thursday.
Feel free to send your thoughts on this my way!
Sailing with the Callahans
Chris and I enjoyed a very nice afternoon sail this past weekend with John and Susu Callahan onboard their boat “Epique”. Maybe this is what got me started thinking about sailing again?? Thanks to Susu for all of the photos in this post!
