Anyone see some idiots in Studland Bay this Saturday ?

Picture this, studland bay saturday afternoon, im lying in my rib having a snooze (as one does) anchored well into the bay (away from no anchor zone) surrounded by many yachts, big powerboats, ribs, kids in water playing around their boats, people is small dinghies rowing ashore, I suddenly hear powerfull engines at full revs and I am throne from the sun bathing pad up the bow onto the deck by the wash of two f***ing idots going across the bay a couple of hundered yards from the beach at high speed, probably doing at least 35 knots, i look up and they are speeding through the middle of a large number of abnchored and moored yachts, one of them hits the wake of the other boat and is jumping all over the place, they finally introduce what looks like an emergency slow down and avoid impacting several yachts and powerboats. Apart from the normal speeding waverunners these two idots were completely insane. I give it 3 months max before a fatal accident occurs in Studland Bay. Would love the contact details for the marine police so I can hassle them to do some patrols in that area at weekends. (if anyone has them please send my way) Im sick of seeing idots at speed risking peoples lives, I like speed dont get me wrong but would not dream of speeding in a bay between yachts and powerboats and kids in the water. Something needs to be done before its too late.

P.S. On way back into Poole a small boat towing a 10 year old in a rubber ring crossed the main shipping channel in between several powerboats and sailing yachts. Idiots.

you are not alone, seen the same in plymouth sound by QAB on saturday, it seems a day for speed freaks!
the radio was the most entertaining, as port control and other boats pitched in with thier thoughts!
sadly we were just off out, so we missed the end of it, but i think they were going to get a ticket!

Not surprised really. Studland has been an idiot magnet for years. Before it was jetskiers it was waterskiers weaving through the boats.

There is a speed restriction close to the beach and anchor points in Studland, so could be taken to court if you had pictures.

The collision took place in the Swash Channel and the trimaran was left badly damaged drifting into the harbour, past the chain ferry before taken under tow.
