Very jealous, cannot comment on the rest of Britain, but winter is back here in the NW of England brrr

On the plus side though... no man eating sharks or box jelly fish, sea snakes and any other nasties to contend with in British waters apart from the odd floating land mine, but that's mostly round Blackpool

I was there in October staying with my brother in law for the rugby - great weather then as well! My lovely wife is flying out next weekend for three weeks - hope it stays nice for her!

There is some bad weather on its way, will be here at the end of the week, but after that it should be all good for your wife! It looks like there will be 20knt + winds in the harbour today and tomorrow, so the Volvo ocean boats will be flying!
