Did you take your helmet off or did it fall off?
That's makes sense ill start doing that!

I took it off and held it in the air so I was easier to Spot by other boats

Cracking vid - well done for sharing.

It really can get you when you least expect it.

I'm glad it didn't fall off!

I see why you did that. Is that what the zap cat guys do when racing? (I have seen a race but don't recall). Obviously avoiding being hit is a very wise precaution - but I wonder if you are actually safer keeping it on as if they do hit you it will hurt less? Just a thought.

As for the parker I think he realised you stopped suddenly and came to check all OK - not sure he realised you were having a little swim.

Great vid, does look spectacular!

Glad the recovery went OK - have to say the Parker does look rather close.

Would echo the idea of spare kill cord being carried by crew/co-driver when there's only 2 of you. Might save valuable time messing around looking for it when you know it's clipped to your PFA.

That was great. As the others said - on the realisation you were ok, I had a proper chuckle as you went over backward
