    Monologue was OK though

    To most non-sailors, a yacht is about 100ft long, made of glistening teak, and adorned with equally glistening nubile female crew.
    Err....is there actually any other type of boat? Seems like the norm for Gosport.

    A film I really enjoyed is "Turning tide En Solitaire" (since Vendee Globe is now on too....).
    Me too. A remarkably good effort.

    Really? I'd much sooner swim from a free-floating boat than from an anchored one. If you've anchored your boat you have to swim as fast as the tide to stay beside her; if you haven't then you both float together.

    I'm assuming the boat's sails are not set/ that there's no significant wind - but so are you.

    Actually the Falcon 9 rocket is supposedly named after the Millenium Falcon- not technically a NASA rocket, but part funded by them via the space station cargo delivery contract amongst others.

    We watched this last week (its on Netflix) - we were unsure if he was supposed to have been rescued or the bright light was some kind an analogy given how deep he had sunk...

    He must have been rescued 'cos he appeared in a new film recently as an OAP bank robber.
