Some of you already know, but I am delighted to let the forum know that I am to be married on Sunday 18 October. Yes, I'm taking on a new crew, after more than two years as a widower!
The marriage, to a Hong Kong Chinese lady called Calli is to take place on Sunday 18 October at 1730 Hong Kong time - that's about 1030 BST. If any of you fancy a quick cruise out to HK , we'd be delighted to see you at Kowloon Union Church, just off Nathan Road in Kowloon. I reckon it would be something like 1600 nm a day ... Perhaps if you borrow the speed machine on one of the recent postings, though it's a bit lacking in accommodation
Calli is a keen but inexperienced sailor, who loves the great outdoors. I've done my best to frighten her (well, I was worried!), but she insists on coming back for more! And at least she understands that the boat is far stronger than we are.
Those who are UK bound may be interested to know that we are having a service of blessing the following weekend, on Saturday 24 October, at 1400, at St John's Church, Waterbeach. We'd be glad to welcome you - as long as you tell me who you are!
Both I and Peter_Cooper will be out of circulation for a bit - he's my best man The risks of not wearing a lifejacket pale into insignificance

Congratulations! Can I suggest you hold your reception at The Red Feather Boa in Staunton Street, Central? You'll be kicking off your marriage with the best Martinis in Asia Pac!!What I lack in diplomacy, I make up for with less tact.

Excellent news, I hope you and Calli will be very happy.
Fair winds on the sea of matrimony etc.More fenders required

Good Luck Paul, Looks like Pete will have to get his own boat in the water next year.

Congratulations Paul, as you probably assumed anyway, unfortunately I can't make it to HK but maybe next time we meet I may buy you and Pete a pint of the good stuff. Have a good one and come back happy

Hi Paul, definitely will be at Waterbeach, its about time I caught up with you and Pete.
We still have an open invitation on Full Circle for you and Calli.
Hope everything goes perfectly in HK, I am sure you haven't left much to chance.
Of course, as an insider, you may have a fair few brownie points already with Him upstairs, so you should be OK.

Now Pete get your ass into gear and get Ammaranthe ready for launching.
