The Channel is wider than it looks, and on the daytime crossing in calm weather I don't believe we changed course once to avoid shipping. On the rougher night passage back, we did tack once to avoid as series of four ships crossing ahead of us, but it was no big deal. In fact, it made the evening more interesting.
