Re: Close call! Who had rights?

Went out same day last year. It was enough to put me off doing it again for a few years!

Have you noticed all those big power boats that sit in the marina all year round, and only go out 4th July and fleet week? How capable sailors do you think they are?

Most people are looking at the sky, not where they are going.

The VHF makes interesting listening, though : lots of calls along the lines of : "xxxxx, watch your wake", "xxxxx watch where you are going", and even, memorably, "xxxxx, you sure are an *******"
