As we head into the so-called fall and winter in this area, the nights are a little cooler but the days are just as hot as ever. At least the wind is picking up, which means we're using the sails for the first time in months. We shook out a few swallow nests from our mainsail and had to grease our headsail roller furling. We'll have to order some new bearings for installation down the line. Boat equipment definitely benefits from use.
