Time for a Break

Good news on the UK front. I had some key meetings this week that had taken a lot of prep, as in “what is the master plan for the next three years for technology,” but they went well and it’s time to focus on the wheel. I feel officially past the stressful parts of getting started this year, and I know there will be surprises, but the short and long range goals look solid and doable.

Sailing on the SolentTo celebrate, it was time to sail. I went to Hamble last weekend to sail with British Offshore Sailing School on the Solent. We sailed a Sigma 38 sailboat (that competed in the Fastnet race this year) to the Isle of Wight and spent the night. Walking the docks in East Cowes, I came across Ellen MacArthur’s boat, B&Q, the big trimaran she single-handed around the world for a record. It felt more than great to sail in open water again, and my wife is there this weekend with the same group to take out a 40 foot Westerly sailboat.

Pictures from my sail are here:

This weekend, I’m with the kids and just resting a lot. At the end of this week, we have four days off for an October break, and I need to decide where we might go for a couple of nights: Portsmouth, Lake District, Cornwall?
