'Both John and I will be unavailable to oversee the Monday evening sailing program for a couple of weeks, for widely varying reasons. John is allowing a couple of surgeons to play with some scrap metal in his leg while I am playing with some scallops in New Caledonia. John is available from about Monday 5, I'm back for Monday 12. Up to John and Richard if they want to go ahead on the 5th, but we still have to do the 'must-do' capsize drill, when I think it would be best to have two support boats available. Provided the water warms up a bit, let's plan this for the 12th.'
