Cold, Wet and Fun Sailing

It was February break, and I worked about half of the week, but earlier this week we took off to the boat and sailed to the Isle of Wight for an overnight on the Medina River.

That may sound great, but it was just a few degrees above freezing, it rained frequently, we have no heat on the boat, and our favorite pub and restaurant on the island was closed.  No food, and no water taxi to get to it.

So, we spent the afternoon and night in a very cold boat, trying to heat it with candles, a lantern and the stove.  Good dinner, but seriously cold overnight.  The next morning we sailed for home– proud of a winter sail, but ready to warm up again back in London.
