Earlier this week we made the last sail of the season, when heading to the boat yard, where Dolphin Dance is going to be laid up for winter. Although rather chilly, the autumn day was sunny and we even got a chance to sail for an hour or so. After arriving to the harbour, we removed the sails for winter. DD was lifted out on Friday with the mast still stepped. Covering the boat without the mast would be easier, so we might be calling a hiab truck next week to unstep the mast.
Is your boat still in the water or already lifted out? Are you planning to leave the mast up for the winter?
The deck was still frosty after a cold night, as we started.
Sails up for the last time this year.
