It’s still a little early here in the northwestern US but some brave skippers are beginning to go sailing. For you folks on the coasts and more to the south, the weather shouldn’t be keeping you off the water but the novel Corona virus outbreak might. Mrs. $tingy and I have been self isolating for 6 weeks by the time you read this and we’re both getting a little cabin fever. I normally work from home and she doesn’t work outside the home so it’s not a big change in our routines. We do miss meeting with family and friends in person, though.
Now is a great time to be making repairs, upgrades, and recommissioning your sailboat before the summer sailing season. That can help to pass the time at home while also getting around to those projects you’ve been putting off all winter.
What are the rest of you stingy sailors out there doing to cope with this pandemic? Are you going out or are you under restrictions? Has COVID-19 affected your family directly? Have you been tested or have you contracted the virus? Add your comments below to share your situation with the rest of us.
And everybody, please observe the recommended mitigation procedures so we can all get through this safely and as soon as possible.
