There are 9 marks approximately a mile and a half offshore:
Three of use went out on the race committee boat Tanker Jones.
There was about 10 knots of wind from the north, but it was very cold around 4 degree C.
Dressed up with plenty of layers of clothes, foul weather gear, and a touque.

Took us a couple of hours.
We could not find mark 5. In the past couple of weeks, we have had MAJOR storms with strong winds from the SE. We will have to make up a new barrel, chain, and anchor for next season.
Tanker Jones comes out next Friday, so remaining tasks
- replace some chain buckets
- put marks on land
- remove the canvas
- remove the flag halyards and mast
- pump out and winterize the head
- position the cradle
