Looks to me like he is trying to find a gap between patches.

I enclose a picture of the incident which rightly has caused a good deal of comment around the world. (including funnies like never take a rubber boat to a knife fight)

Here is a pic of the yacht
What did the girl in purple expect sitting in a GP protest boat, as for the knife, a small hole would mean they would have to go back to port, I'm not on GP side any more, some of there little schemes are far from laudable

GP went downhill when they renounced their charity status & went Ltd. They said that charity status was too constraining on their activities, so they sold out, went commercial & got hijacked by extremists. As a Ltd Co. it's easier to skim off money too; if they wanted to that is, which I'm sure they don't Should have stuck to saving whales imho.

Esimit Europa 2

I worked with that yacht for a 6 days pre Cowes week out of portsmouth and there wasn't a Russian to be seen amongst the two crews. They were a completely mixed European crew with the odd Aussie and S.A and the Aussie skipper is a complete gentleman.

Perhaps greenpeace have overlooked that GazProm are one of many sponsors and i can hardly see them kicking up that much of a fuss over Rothschilds involvement !
