It's all your fault Ollie, because you bought a boat!

It sure has been windy, I run a hovercraft as well as a rib, hovercraft do not handle wind very well as you have no grip on water, I've only managed one trip in the hovercraft this year!

Tell me about it, this is a pic of my sail boat being lifted out the water yesterday. The high winds and some massive chop caused it to snap it's mast on my mooring

Last September was great. I remember three warm, flat days in Cornwall very well.
