I think I explained numerous times to various people at the prize giving on Saturday night (when I say "I think", it all got a bit hazy...) but I am not going to be sailing Merlins next year.

At the end of November I will be off to Austria with my girlfriend to do a ski season in St Anton so if anyone is thinking going skiing then come out there to visit! I will be working in Chalet Strauss with a company called Powderwhite (

Once we're done with that we are coming back for a week to dump the snowboards, pick up the shorts and go travelling around Asia for 5 months.

We're intending on returning in October 2010 but who knows what will happen!

So I'd just like to say thanks to everyone, it's been a good few seasons and I've had some good fun and managed to spend far too much money mostly on alcoholic beverages and fancy dress costumes.

we're going to be starting a blog so if you want to say hello then have a look here:

if any of you are around Brighton before the end of September then let me know. Otherwise see you all in 2010 or 2011!

Was he really that bad DD? This all seems like a bit of a drastic escape....

Dave, I hope and Gemma have a great year off skiing and travelling! You know where to find Still Not Over when you return, hopefully with a mast in one piece by then ;-)
