Reminds me of - two days ago. Sailing (drifting) in the western Solent, against the tide, watching three big cruise
ships approaching. Why are they coming this way, they never come this way.
track of my position and was sailing northwest at two or three knots at best, and being carried (drifting) east at two to three knots on the flooding tide.
on and sod off out of the way a bit sharpish, still chuckling at the RIB
that crossed between the lead cruiser and it's Police Escort Launch maintaining the 1000ft exclusion zone ahead of large vessels (constrained by draught). The RIB
tried to outrun the Launch until it got up to speed! It was a short chase and a very long lecture.
