I know I've seen him cross the channel

No, it really was, using the LJ (Longjohn) x TA (time airborne) / FT (full throttle) = WH (wave height) formula, the waves were no more than 2ft (60cm) high.

That Capelli 470 will go through anything! David and I could not shake him off despite some flat out bursts as we got nearer to Poole. Very impressed.
