Spot on Peter.
If anyone shines a light in my eyes I will be very unhappy.

Just think what it is like when some twit forgets to dip his headlights.

Human eyes work well in low light conditions (not pitch dark) and exposing them to any white light kills your night vision considerably for several minutes.

I'm begining to see the advantage of being on duty until 01h00. I think I will find a nice big Wightlink ferry and tuck in behind that to get back to Pompy.

Of course they need to be used sensibly. Like most things if used properly they can be a good and safe aid. If abused they become annoying and dangerous.

It takes 20 mins minimum to get your night sight. And that means no white light at all for that period.

After reading of all the problems anticipated in going home in the dark I am seriously considering camping out on the boat until first light.
Having never been to Priory Bay I assume it is inaccessible apart from by sea?
Is it viable to beach our boat and camp out on the beach?

Sounds good Kathleen - We will give you a call on Monday Night when we arrive at Calshot to arrange an RV if that's ok?
thanks
Martyn
