Well your extra 110 horses puts you in a different league plus with the red which is a known power colour means your a man not to be messed with

Went out yesterday - would have been very entertaining for the sibs - would definitely have needed your immersion suits! Poole Bay was pretty rough, windy and confused.

It was lovely and sunny - but as I said surprisingly rough & cold at sea - lots of white horses.

Anybody with a boat in Poole who didn't stick their nose out of the harbour on Sunday missed something! Confused waves: yes, but similar heights which meant relatively high speeds ..... until you met the one that wasn't the same height!

Sorry that Pete couldn't make it; but I got over to Yarmouth and blagged free short stay (would have been an expensive pint otherwise!) and had a blast of a ride back with the waves behind. More air than water....

but when you're on your own in those conditions, it's difficult without a fixed Go Pro!
