Shortest ever cruise?

Joined a Dinghy Cruising Association cruise today. Went in at the ferry hard at Smuggler's Lane, Bosham (the other side of the channel in the picture) and rowed across to Itchenor where Cliff and Sarah, the only other arrivals, were preparing their Wayfarer. They launched and headed for East Head. I launched intending to row up to Dell Quay for lunch, but it suddenly came down in stair rods, driven by a nasty squall. So I rowed straight back to Smugglers Lane and went home.
Total distance covered: about 600 yards. Could this be the shortest DCA cruise ever?
