Coz that's exactly what they all think! ....and he aint even got the rags up!..but hey, that doesn't usually stop them thinking they still have right of way.

That whole insistance on racing 50 little sail boats, right in the busiest part of any waterway (like the itchen, or the hamble)really fecks me off. like they're making a point.

I'll bet he thought the ferry would just move round him, they have power after all!

Collision at sea regs state he hasn't got a hope in hells chance with an insurace claim, that's if he's still alive.
Bit of a yachties mental block me thinks.
