Make Alderney your first landing?

It would be great to see you, having done the route a couple of times I can recommend it.

No we were running next to each other communicating and it was quite lumpy and a wave brought us together have watched it a few times in hindsight if I hadn't of turned so drastically to separate us the stern wouldn't have got that close. It was close but just missed contact if I remember right

No we didn't connect and the wide angle lens made it look much worse than it actually was thats why you could hear me laughing

We were pushed together by the swell although again the lens makes it look really flat although it was really tough going on the way there.

I did make a spoof trailer that cracks me up every time I watch it
