Hello again,

Isnít it amazing that this is the last bank Holiday before August? No doubt many of you are itching to get on the water, so letís hope the weather plays ball. Iíve included an extra forecast for Bank Holiday Monday below.

Thanks again for your webinar feedback, all is going to plan and Iíll be announcing the full package of training and webinars very shortly. I hope you will be able to join me in the; it really has proved a wonderful way of learning. The beauty is that you do it in your own home and you can ask any questions you need. Of course you donít get the same interaction as being in a group at Weather School (Sailing Weather part 1 is on 6th November), but it is very good if you canít make it to Wombourne.

Onto the weekend forecast, and if you know anyone whoíd like to receive this email each week just tell them to send a request to join to

Have a good weekend,
