Spring Break

"Before I entered the area of reefs en route to the main harbor I hoisted the mainsail. There was ice on the halyard and it got hung up in the mast head sheaves. I tried to insert the winch handle in the main halyard winch but the socket was full to the brim with ice. I had to chisel it out with a Phillips head screw driver. The main sheet was also encrusted with ice and I had to whip it against the cockpit seats to unstiffen it so that it would run through the cam cleat."
