The clouds ahead had come in quickly and with such menace that every hand on deck was called for to 'catch' the remaining jumpers as they descended. As soon as we saw them coming back towards us, the look on their faces told us all we needed to know; we would not be jumping this afternoon after all. Having finally felt I had mastered my hangover and just started to look forward to fulfilling ...
