I have been anticipating the launch of S/V Corsair for months. Carefully considering the various project timelines, my own work schedule, and the weather, I initially aimed for a 15 March launch. When it became obvious that various forces, especially those of Mother Nature, were clearly conspiring against me I moved the launch date to 25 March. Even last week as Old Man Winter was delivering another body blow to the area and my final refit plans I thought to myself, "Surely, this is the end of winter and we will be clear to launch next Tuesday (25 March). " Ha! So much for the best laid plans of mice and men.
