Well, we're at the end of the trip now. In Deltaville, Virginia. Now we are ready to start winterizing the boat. Today we worked on the mainsail (to be precise, we tucked it under the sail cover) cleaned the safety gear, and bought supplies. Before we go on the hard, we have to take down all the sails. You see, if a sail accidentally deployed when you are in the water, you would simply drag your anchor. If it deployed when you are hauled out, it would be a disaster. All the boats would fall like dominoes, damaging them all. So, the boatyard wants us to take down all our sails so prevent something very bad from happening. It looks we have a lot of work ahead of us.
