Winter Cruising - Press Article

Hello All

I'm writing a press article about cruising in the winter months.
Personally I've had some great days out boating even in the coldest winter weather. If you're the same please respond with a few insights into the magic of winter waters and tips on how to make it better.

When the article comes out I'll post up here where it can be found or might get permission to post the whole article here. If you have any suitable pictures please let me know also and these might attract a fee. Thanks, Ivan

I go out in my boat all year round. Obviously the main problem in winter is the weather but another issue is the short days that limit how far you can go unless you fancy night sailing. I went to Mont St. Michel in February this year; god it was cold. Still, it was one of the best days I've had at sea. I got an article about my trip published in RIB magazine a while back and have plenty of photos if you want some.

When it's cold, fold paper:
