Raceday at Neilson so swapped the Flare for an S-Type. Didn't feel much faster than the Flare but as I won all my races I guess it couldn't have been that slow.

So overall reflection on Dahab - we've been plenty of times but this was the first time with Neilson and the first time with a 7-month old baby.

Conclusions:
1) Neilson creche was great - Nayra was the only baby so it was basically like having our own Nanny! Nayra had a great holiday, wasn't overcome by the heat and happily took to Egyptian (bottled) water.
2) Neilson not the greatest location on the beach - requires a long upwind slog to get home (which we knew) - but the only centre with a creche so beggars can't be choosers!
3) Yes, I know it was windier in the UK - but we had wall-to-wall sunshine and nice flat water for improving moves
4) This year we didn't fly with XL - phew! (we left the night they went bust)
