Re: Do you use dinghy lights?

I saw a very smart man once in a dinghy who first appeared to be a total idiot. Imagine my surprise to see this guy with his normal green/red bow light that did not disturb his night vision and instead of the all-round white on a pole where he could be impaired by the light; he was wearing a bicycle helmet with his white battery light fixed on a short staff atop his head. He was the tallest thing in his dinghy and where ever he looked the light was not in his view. He also had placed a black painted CD disk on the staff just under the light that blocked the light from shining down around him. When I first saw him getting in his dinghy, I thought he was "in costume", but the result as he motored away was brilliant!
