No doubt you’ll be spending tomorrow with family doing all the traditional Thanksgiving things — pigging out on turkey and pumpkin pie, watching football, sleeping . . . and dreaming about getting out on the water. Thursday’s schedule may not allow time for a quick daysail, but Friday offers a great opportunity to head out for a peaceful sail while the rest of the fam is fighting the crowds for the best Black Friday deals.

The forecast doesn’t look stellar — partly cloudy, temps in the 60s, and 5-10 knots of breeze — but we can all agree that it’s far better than getting dragged into the holiday shopping frenzy. In fact, do your friends a solid and invite them along for the fun — just make sure they bring the beverages and some turkey sandwiches.

Another good reason to get out on the water on Friday: ‘Lectronic Latitude will be on vacation that day!
