Summer is arriving

Summer is arriving sometime next year lol ... Any one else fed up of the wet weather in UK. Just had 3 weeks rain in one day in Dorset. Hope it gets better soon for olympics.

Yep getting a bit peed off with! We haven't had one decent dry weekend out on a boat this year! Even our south of France holiday was bonkers windy!
Had planed a lap of the IOW today...instead sitting in a bungalow watching the rain!
Got a days diving with friends tomorrow and come what may well be out there!
It's got to break soon and give us some good weekends!

I'm thinking of going back to rag and stick. Maybe a windsurfer so I'll be getting wet anyway.
Like Peter M I'm tempted to go out tomorrow whatever the weather.

I was supposed to go to MSM on my jet ski today with Dave and 35 French skiers. Thanks to the F7 that's blowing outside and the pouring rain I've had to spend the day in town with Mrs GJ0KYZ looking at new kitchens. It was un-nice believe me, and anxiety provoking given the prices.

Did you do the norm of thinking ' that would buy me a new (insert marine toy here) for the boat ' ?
