Boston forcast is for lots of sun, 20 kt winds and temps in the low 30s for Saturday. I plan to sail Pleasure Bay.

Maybe Ill stop by and watch. I dont think I want to sail in below freezing temps. My wife would probably have me committed! Of course, she might do that anyway. scooper

Great. Maybe you can take a picture or two. My plan has been to keep going out until its too cold to be fun. So far Ive been warm enough but Saturday will be the coldest yet.

The forecast has gotten colder and windier. 20 kts and low 30s seemed do-able, but 27 kts with temps in the teens or low 20s is too cold.

I think Ill go terrain sailing at Seabrook.

What is terrain sailing? Ive got a land board with pnumatic wheels but Ive never really found a good place to use it near by, (Boston suburbs). Ive been toying with the idea of digging it out of the piles of junk for one of these cold days when I dont want to get wet. When I bought it I thought I could use it at a local park but the wind was too unsteady. scooper

Thats what I have. A terrain board with 10 in pnuematic wheels. It is hard to find a good place to do it. Theres an RV campground on the Hampton side of the inlet at Seabrook that I use. The surface is hard packed dirt, grass and stones so its not uideal but it gets good wind and its wide open in the off season.

I froze there yesterday. My chin was numb by the tuime Id rigged. Wind was too gusty. I rigged a 3.7 and still couldnt handle it.

Yeah, sounds like our boards might be similar. Too bad that you froze! scooper
