BBC Breakfast team doing Lemonfaces for LeukaemiaLemonfaces for Leukaemia

A very good friend of mine, and big Pilot Cutter fan Dora Kemp was recently diagnosed with acute Leukaemia. BOO! To cheer herself up a bit she asked all of her friends to take a selfie of themselves eating a lemon. Well she's had a good response - even including the BBC Breakfast team - but we can do better right?

 

It's really pretty simple: Get a lemon, bite deep and take a picture of your face as you grimace. Then go to https://www.facebook.com/LemonfacesforLeukaemia and post the picture for Dora to look at and chuckle over.

 

Go on - it'll only take a minute and it'll give her something to look forward to apart from lumbar punctures and chemo.

Five days lolling around in the St Mawes sunshine are all very well – but where we really wanted to be during the best summer in years was out in the Scilly. It’s magical out there even when things get frisky but with endless high pressure in the forecast our two sojourns to the Scilly promised great things…
 

Amelie Rose racing in the St George's TrophyFrom the Archives: First, last and aground – Amelie Rose and the St Georges Trophy 2013

The St Georges Trophy traditionally heralds the beginning of the lovely Spring weather that we seem to be having these days (3 out of the previous 4 regattas being held in glorious sunshine) so as St George's Day approached we peered hopefully at the weather forecasts to divine what we had in store...

 

Amelie Rose at Anchor off St Agnes in the ScillyFrom the Archives: Scilly Sailing - Fabulous or Fearsome?

White sandy beaches and gently waving palm trees - all set against a rolling ocean. Are we cruising around the Med, holidaying in the Canaries or cast away on a Caribbean island? No, we’re much closer to home in the wonderful Isles of Scilly. Loved and feared in almost equal measure by sailors throughout history we explore the "Favoured Isles"...
