Ideally free sailing?

I know I am being demanding - but I am desparate

Croatia is no good in December (at least I don't think so)

Done Neilson the last 3 years - just wanted something different

Maybe you need Hector from here. I can get what they are trying to say but I am a bit hmm & shock at the opening statement.

Katymac Wed 16-Sep-09 20:20:09

Hmm, I agree, definitely a bit hmm

What sort of sailing? Only reason I ask is that it can get really windy, or perhaps that's what you want. My only experience is sailing on a 55ft yacht between the various Canary Islands in Feb and it was really tough sailing. The islands seem to create some sort of wind funnel effect!

No experience of sailing there, but I remember watching with my heart in my mouth as DH battled the waves on a hired windsurfer off Fuerteventura.

I really thought I'd be taking DS1 home alone!

Katymac Fri 18-Sep-09 20:24:38

I've gone off the idea......DD is only 11 & sailing Toppers

Anyway we are off to Jamaica after all grin

Again, not Canaries, but Sunsail do Turkey and Greece.

Sorry, should have read your last post before posting!

Katymac Fri 18-Sep-09 20:38:35

Don't worry.......I'm just so chuffed to be going to Jamaica

OurLadyOfPerpetualSupper Sat 19-Sep-09 00:00:52

Are you going of your own accord?

Katymac Sat 19-Sep-09 07:23:31

Is that a reference to Les Dawson grin

Very old joke.......wink

Ancient music hall joke (old crone emoticon).
Have a super time.
