Summer holiday

For the next couple of weeks I’ll be away trying to spend a relaxing time with my family sailing in Croatia. I’ll be acting the part of Captain Bligh as I run a tight ship and don’t expect any mutiny. To be honest the kids, though they pretend that all they are willing to do is sunbath and drink the ships stock of rum, are pretty reliable when it comes to handling the boat, so it should be a lot of fun. Going away with two other sets of close family friends, making up our own mini-flotilla, guarantees camaraderie and fun for all generations. 

Although it could go wrong, I'm hoping it turns out better than it did four years ago. If you want to read just how badly that went, read this - "What I did on my holiday" .

too late for me to say "don't do it", but sailing holidays with family members are fraught with difficulties. Last one I went on, tropical location, supposedly perfect weather year round. It was gales, storms for 2 weeks. I had a funny dream that vomit and sweat was dripping from the ceilings of the cabin. Then I woke up and realized it was not a dream! Needless to say, have not been able to persuade the wife to go again.
