This is the second time I've made the local paper for going out on days when my wife thinks I'm crazy - and no one else is on the water.
Beautiful evening with the temperature at 4C (about 40F) and winds 25-27. (Note the person wearing the touque) I set a new personal night time record with sustained speeds above 13 knots with the chute up.

Winter in Victoria is wonderful.

Winter here is totally wonderful. We enjoyed a nice meal with Born2Sail and VALIS while you were out freezing your knackers off.

Keep going out this time year in those conditions, and at some point you will make the papers, the obituary section

Great day in Vancouver as well. Clear, windy, beautiful. Who could ask for more. Middle NA is just getting started for winter and boats have been hauled until Apr/May. Here we are already thinking towards for spring. Spring means Jan 1st.

Here ya go:
