No winter sailing?
Very cool, Lucy. Most sailboats are already in around here, I think--no one I know sails here in the upper Bay of Fundy (too much tide, etc) but on the Atlantic side there's been so much bad weather the past month or so I don't think it's been fit.
Gotta get 'em out of the water and on land somehow.
Love this, but then I love boats.
Hello Luis. The boats in the picture belong to a sailing club so they aren't the big kind. Even larger ones are often brought in in the autumn for repair and maintenance over winter. Sometimes we get huge sailing ships coming into the Harbour in Weymouth; reproductions and training ones which give people a taste of what life was like before the mast in the old days. I assume they can take much stormier weather.Hello Jodi. It was calm over the weekend but the wind has really got up over night so I think they brought these boats in at a good moment. I don't sail (though members of my wider family do) but seeing these boats brought in in autumn and put back out the next year marks the seasons for me as much as leaves falling or daffodils emerging.Hello Marka, yes, they need to come out somehow - and I like the cranes which lift them too.Hello Hermes. Do you sail?Lucy
