Not Sailing (Again!)

Ok a confession.

I was going to go sailing this weekend but the forecast was cold easterlies with lots of rain, and it meant missing my nephew's birthday tea.

So when heard there were too many cancellations from the crew for it to be worth taking out the boat was, I'm afraid to say, a bit relieved.

After the Red Funnel non-sail over Easter this hasn't been a good start to the year for what is meant to be a sailing blog.

Maybe I'll have to follow Turinas and have a board meeting.

Or call in those crazy celebrities......

can't figure how to send you a message but through comments.

Having sailed a lot and done my RYA courses there, I quickly came to appreciate passage planning !
I came across this beta software which make alot of sense for the Thames, and south coast .

Thanks for that - yes I ought to have an email link but want to avoid spam etc.

Looks like a very nice piece of software - can't justify it yet but will keep it in mind.
