Hope you all had a great New Year celebration!
Time for two things - firstly resolutions, and one of mine is definitely to join a local Thames sailing club (doh!). And to do it while continuing to kayak.
Secondly to think of those who haven't had a peaceful break over the holiday season. I was particularly horrified to read this story about a ship being prevented from taking much needed medical supplies to Gaza by being deliberately rammed while in international waters.
So lets hope that 2009 brings the people of that troubled part of the world some of the justice and peace they are so sorely lacking.
