For many sailors, Labor Day signifies the end of summer. Switching from the lazy, hazy days of summer to hauling and preparing the boat for winter storage.
As Commuter Cruisers, we have none of the blues associated with the last summer sail! Luckily for us, Labor Day signifies another month closer to returning to the boat!
We typically don’t return until sometime in October, but Labor Day always makes us feel like our cruising adventures are right around the corner. While still enjoying fall in the midwest, our mindset switches to looking ahead … what do we need to order to take back to the boat (especially when the boat is out of the country), where are we going this year, do we need charts or cruising guides for that area and are there special considerations that will need to be taken care of before leaving this year?
Celebrate Labor Day however you prefer … with family and friends, cookouts, parades, ballgames, roasting marshmallows over the fire pit … and maybe even sailing … and then it will be time to refocus on your next cruising adventures!
HAPPY LABOR DAY!
