From the green pile by krisis to the red pile by ballistic it is open speed at point England.but still must observe the 5knt rule passing 50m of another vessel and 200m from shore

 

Yip - 50m distance? Maybe.

 

200m from shore he wasn't. Its a bit hard to see in the video but he was within the 200m.

 

He was the 3rd punter that day to zoom past.

Its a hard one, sure they are technically wrong but what is the rule trying to achieve?  Sunny day , flat water, good vis probably more annoying than unsafe. A Maratimo 60 planing past 100 metres away is far worse

Yeah, as someone in that situation almost every weekend, I'd rather they went past like that, than dragging their arse at some mythical 5 knots.

 

And I hear you about the Maritimo. If boats ever require a warrant of fitness, lets hope wake is treated the same way as noise/smoke in cars.

There were some complete useless stink pots out on the gulf on Saturday, when you have a complete ocean why do you have to pass within 20metres of a yacht struggling in light air and wave?  Two boats on Saturday did this to me on the way to the Barrier
