    End of the summer sailing season

    October 29, 2010

    I hate this time of year, sailing’s end.

    The SB3 has been parked for the winter in a dry barn in Cloghjordan.  We brought all the sails, lines and loose items home with us after the Dromineer Midlands.  Everything has been washed, rinsed, dried and stored in the attic. The picture shows the last of the sails hanging out in the drive after being rinsed with fresh water.  The head is tied to the railing and the clew is hoisted up the drain pipe.  When dried, it was rolled and stored.

    The two Fireballs are being repaired / maintained for the Dun Laoghaire Frostbite which begins on Sunday 7 November.  I’ll be out there with them  laying marks and doing rescue duty.
