Summer 2012 – so it’s raining most of the time! Turned out to be the worst sailing season we can remember but then one can either get lost in the nearby historic High Street and local restaurants or get buried in boat related stuff.

A coaster took interest in us in the shipping lanes and having clearly passed his bows he was then back on a collision course and so it went on until he drew alongside, shadowed us at 45 degs to the shipping lane before overtaking by cutting across our bow about 200 yds ahead as evidenced by the AIS track – an unusual encounter

The Channel is seriously busy often with 7 ships abreast all closing at different speeds
