Oh Ballcocks. Richard rang me last night to tell me that the crossing was smooth but I didnt realise that it was that smooth. Now I wish we'dve skived work to go (Mind you I suspect he was happy to have the chance to drive his own boat again )

Photos beg a question - just how heavy is Aging Youth? He seems to be doing a good job sinking the stern of Top Banana in the photo!

Hmm, and in the first photo he isn't on board so the rib is only running on the back 12 inches

From the beginning...

We left a choppy(ish) Solent and as we moved away from the Needles the water just flattened right out, making for an incredible trip.

1. Southern coast of the Isle of Wight disappears in Blue Ice's wake.

2. Awesome Explorer powered by BOTH engines.

3. Scorpio gliding on glass.

4 & 5. Top Banana ice skating across the channel.

15 miles off Alderney...

Disaster strikes for Awesome Explorer but Aging Youth, without hesitation, takes to the water with diving knife between teeth and cuts away the fishing net.

1. Kevin in the water.

2. Andy gets to see the cause of his problem.

3. "Wait for me!" shouts Kevin.
