Leaving Poole harbour today I hit a set of pretty big waves and managed to end up going for a swim
I always wear my kill cord so it cut the engine straight away but I was more worried about being in the water in a shipping lane!
Straight away a sailing yacht and a Sunseeker came over too check up on us, as well as a parker rib which I think was a tour boat that nearly ran me over!
Swimming with a helmet, gloves, boots & lifejacket isn't easy but managed to get back to the boat fine and was off again pretty quickly.
Was reassuring when I knew how many people were about to help & how quickly they got there. Always good to know everyone looks out for each other out there.
& as a bonus I got it all on Gopro!!
