As much as I’d rather be in the Caribbean than Vietnam, being here pays for the summer cruising in the med but I totally get not having to do the UK winter! 28-33’c here all year, I can’t remember the last time I felt cold but I will have a shock in a few days when I head back to the UK (5’c) for a few days before popping to Sicily (14’c) for some boat work. Now where did I put that fleece......
