Having said that living with a nurse who is working as a vaccinator as well as having a daughter working as a care worker of the elderly I am at higher risk of catching the bloody virus.

Americas cup

Watching the Americas cup races from NZ this afternoon (getting desperate with no windsurfing). While racing, the American boat crashed after a gybe while doing 40 Knots. Looked bloody painful. Puts a windsurfing catapult into perspective!

Re: Any game changing winter wetsuits!

I always buy Rip curl as their size small fits me perfectly. I ordered a 6/5 hooded Flashbomb and found it much tighter than usual and the hood was tiny, or I've got a big head! Had to send it back and get a 5/4 which is lovely and toasty!
