I can't imagine JK laughing, he seemed like such a nice bloke.
As it was HW we decided to take the short route via the Looe Channel and that is where we encounted the worst conditions. I would say that the waves were more or less 6-8 feet high. A funny feeling when you are on the top of a wave and it is still rising. You get the feeling that you are not moving forward at all until you look at the land and see that you are moving and then sudden acceleration and down you go.
as for the laughing well we all had a good laugh at the end and we are all nice blokes
