What are Your Fall Sailing Plans?

What are your sailing plans this Fall? It begins today!

Friday, September 22, is the Fall Equinox. Officially, this means summer is over. Unofficially, it means you might get to stretch out your summer of sailing just a little more, depending on where you live. Of course if you live in the southern part of the globe, it means you’re actually heading toward summer rather than away from it.
