Daysail

30 November 2011 | Sitka, AK
Richard/Maggie
We hadn't done a thorough enough job of tying the sheets (ropes that control the sails) up off the deck before the last snowfall, so they were full of snow and ice, and quite difficult to move thru the blocks. The winch sockets (where the winch handles fit in) were also full of ice (I'll have to make some covers for these), so the winching was done without the winch handle and we didn't put up a lot of sails. Still, it was an enjoyable sail.
