Re: Teacher beheaded in France

Not sure if this bit is true? Details of the attack and investigation were given by the anti-terrorism state prosecutor, Jean-François Ricard. He named the suspect as Abdoulakh A. - an 18-year-old man, born in Moscow of Chechen origin. He came to France with refugee status as a boy and was unknown ...

Re: Back to school or stay at home : 1.6.2020 UK?

Again, each to their own and their own circumstances, but the level of risk in 3 weeks time of catching it should be negligible and still negligible for doing any serious harm. Yes, well that's why we (as in my family) are waiting another 3 weeks. To reduce further risk —in our opinion, whatever th...

Re: Back to school or stay at home : 1.6.2020 UK?

The govt have done way to good a job of scaring the shit out of everyone. So there's no risk? The point being there's a good chance there's no feasible way to minimise risk and return to normal. (Unlikely but very much in the ball park) How long do you wait it out before it's genuinely a detriment?...

Do you mean doing 15-20 knots ? All depends on the sea conditions I guess. On a nice, flat, protected bay, lake or lagoon it's a lot of fun. In choppy swell much less. And with those type of boats you'll need at least 20-25 knots of wind.
