Top Gear is a comedy show that happens to have cars in it. When did you last see them actually review, seriously, an ordinary car?

They used to before Jeremy Clarkson took over the show. Not that I'm complaining, I prefer this incarnation hands-down.

I charter a bit.

The only caveat I am finding is that charter boats tend to be consistently undercanvassed. Especially the jib. I always have to imagine what the boat would sail like with a 135., spinnaker etc...
