Well a bimini maybe not enough to live twice.... However, marina holiday traffic end of season, is way less, a BIG plus and last year I had a great time down in Rhodes during Dec. Pre the yellow-peril-shenanigans, odds on you'lll have a ball enjoy! PS: Hvar, only if you have to...Pakleni Otoci better, if things more off the beaten track work for you.

    Melanie de Vere, was at the Risk Waters conference on the 106th floor WTC/north tower when that terrifying howl and fireball jet smash evaporated seven floors below. She was just one of the sixty-seven British souls that didn’t make it out that day. Mel loved sailing and the sea, and no her mother Maggy my cousin never, ever got over it... (God rest both their souls)

    What's your approach to Risk Management?

    Takeaways? A PLB in strom wave troughs is limited in transmitting clen/clear signalling, EPIRB in the Grab Bag a must do, if there is time. There but for the grace of Sea Gods, go all of us...
