Its that time of year again. The Christmas decorations have been put away for another year and England is grey and wet, so it must be time for the London Boat Show.
But I can't get enthusiastic and wonder why bother going. It's not like the year I was thinking of buying a dinghy so had fun checking out Lasers and Toppers. It's not like the year I met up with a couple of friends in the champagne bar, nor the year another friend was exhibiting.
If I go at all it will be the late Thursday night where there seems to be an open bar at most stands. But at the moment its only 50:50.
But yes, this sailor does think a spinnaker is much like a bikini top.
