I can't believe he's a naval officer and has the temerity to plead 'not guilty'.

Its the "blue ensign brigade" at its best.

They seem to carry on with the same high and mighty attitude expected on a warship even though they're only messing about "off duty" on a 40ft sail boat.....

Arrogant tozzers...

It's probably escaped your notice, but in this country you are innocent until proven guilty.

Secondly, as a Naval Officer, he is likely to have far more knowledge of the sea and navigation than you will ever have, so perhaps you should wait until the verdict of the court is announced before making these "armchair pundit" comments.

The officer may be found innocent or indeed guilty, but I believe you should not comment again until the court has reached it's verdict.

In this country we have a right to express opinion. I'm with Nos....guilty...just watch the bloody film!!!!

He may have all the knowledge in the world..but in my judgement if he does ...why didn't he use any of it..or even any common sense?

He could of course the innocent until killed by a large tanker line of thinking?
