awww yeah a mate of mine decided he would capsize in the path of a frigate, in weymouth. Scary moments for all the rescue crew etc, but left us with some intersting stories.  

Also having made a nuclear sub wait till we had finnished raceing to come across the course.  thats cretainly a good story, we can do that but have no power over ferries, hum somethings obviously wrong here.

Once when i was racing in cardiff bay me n my mate tacked in front of a small day trip ferry, got hit by a shift and pulled it over on top of us! scariest thing was the fact it was blowing a 7 and raining so we were glad when he stuck his head up and saw us! fortunately he only had to change course slightly to avoid us!

At the 2003 Contender worlds in Plymouth the race officer stunned everyone by telling us to give any military looking vessels a wide birth as we might get guns pointed at us or even a warning shot across the bows otherwise!

we get that when we sail past the fireing ranges, you hear the wine of the shell then a water spout!

Never, under any circumstances, take a sleeping pill and a laxative on the same night.
