28 October 2009 : Back in UK now. Very good windsurfing at Lepe in Hampshire last Sunday : 5m sail on Tabou Rocket 105.
 
19 October 2009 : We had a good 2 weeks in Kouremenos in October and the weather was warm and sunny apart from 2 cloudy/showery days. The first week was windy and the second week light. We had a few good mountain bike rides including a climb up to Xerolimni wind farm at 450m. We made some progress on the house. Still a lot to do.
