The wimp returns!

Wimp here! Cautious, most of the time, keen to cruise at most economical speed when possible, yes, happy to have a blast, absolutely! slightly slower top speed than Avocet, unfortunately true (and he does like to let me know!)

Still up for this subject to satisfactory return of exeat request, completion of all agreed tasks in acceptable timeframe, dog walking duties completed and availability of fuel, etc, etc.

Very happy to escort if required. Fingers crossed for a decent forecast.

Boris, going all the way to Anvil Point for your anniversary, I hope you are going by boat, v romantic.
