Keep Calm and stay upright

Lewis has an 'activities week' at school and yesterday he came home having made this phone holder for me.

Activities of a different nature tonight though as it was an evening sailing session. The weather has been gorgeous the last week or so, so I packed a shorty wetsuit and no spraytop think we were in for another suntan topping session. The wind looked fresh at about 15 knots when we arrived, but it soon built up and on the water we watched the storm clouds move in.

Fortunately the water is quite warm this time of year, but we were drenched repeatedly by the spray - what you might call an immersive experience. It was as much as we could do to keep the boat up, and in the event we were the only boat not to capsize.

Totally exhilarating...
