Jeremy Clarkson - Take 2 ...

Whilst watching flying cat 5 arrive over the top of my cappuchino a "Jeremy Clarkson" double made conversation with me.

We seem to share a lot in common, however i hope i never the need for a fernet branca kick start. Its quite good fun to talk about London etc especially, when you have been lucky to escape the rat race for at least a while.

However two Brits on the next table who had steeped off a yacht were less than impressed. We were having a laugh and a chat with just about everyone, and they were in touch with their offices telling people what to do in their absence.

However Jeremy Clarkson - 'Take 2' and I both appreciate the skill required in skipping stones across water ...

Its in the English psyche it seems, He said the first all important skip is where the trajectory of impact defines the ability to skim across the water. The reason it had flown so high last night was the angle was not quite right.

I had to agree ...

I can see a skip off taking place, some time soon. It seems that the optimum angle is 20 degrees and some french guy using a machine and a water tank, achieved 38 skips according to Wikpedia ...
