Charles, Keith,

I was for a short 6 days vacation at Tinos (Cyclades islands, Aegean Sea) and the weather was at least superb. Bright sunshine, flat calm seas and warm sunny beaches. I really don't want to make you envy me but if that Azores high is responsible for the RERFECT weather we had, may it will never build up.
Charles, have you ever been in Greece ? If not give it a try. You' ll never regret it.
That goes for you too Keith.

Why is the Azores High so weak? I've actually got no idea, Benjamin. But I'll go try and find out. If I succeed I'll let you know straight away. Someone out there in cyberspace must have a clue...

One thing is for certain, there is absolutely bugger-all we can do about the weather. Batman, yes I have been to Greece and it was fantastic. JK, hmmmm, what can I say?

Pray 4 Sun

Two bookings today, none yesterday and one tomorrow, think I am going to move to Oz.

Dare I say it but if this weather carries on like this for much longer it looks like I may be forced to sell one of the jags and god forbid, rent out the apartment in Monaco!!

Lets hope things dont come to that.

Some useful sites for weather info.
National Data Buoy Centre ~ Information from data buoys around the UK.
Inshore waters forecast, from the good old BBC
Satellite image W Europe
More satellite images and radar
Isobars and cloud
After giving it some thought I think we should look at promoting ribbing to a wider community. Perhaps this would be a good place to start.

Praying for Sun in Cornwall.

Gaelforce no problem with sorting out the weather, just give my wife a call and she'll walk across Irish sea and sort it for you.

Whiteshoes, the graphic you asked about was from the weather centre on the BBC's web-site.
