Laser over the Channel

A bit of a delayed post, but Robin Morris has successfully rowed his converted Laser, the PicoMicroYacht, across the Channel - he is pictured above off Cap Gris Nez. Congratulations, Robin!
Robin has described the crossing in some detail in his blog, which I have read with interest as I am coxing a pilot gig across this weekend, weather permitting.
There is a good deal of discussion of the navigation but luckily I won't have to do any of that as the support boat will set the direction. All I will have to do is pull the correct string and try and keep the bow into the waves.
The row was in aid of Epilepsy Research UK - sponsor him generously!
