Oh dear. According to that I'm not really cut out for knighthood.
I can't grow hair on top of my head and hate shaving!

I'll have to look around for a chainmail jersey and knicks with solid pewter chamois :-)

We got down to Torquay on Friday late afternoon. It was absolutely freezing, and raining and blowing pretty hard when we went out for dinner.

I was so glad I packed everything and bought arm warmers just the week before!

It was overcast, damp and a bit breezy a the beach for the start.…
