Its was running fast today! Not on the video was a small, low powered Shetland that fought the flow only to be greeted by a complete tree washed out on the flow (he managed to spot it and miss it, just!)

Scared the cr@p out of me first time out off the quay having launched at the lifeboat station, hit the bottom at least twice, and never been back

I vaguely remember as a teenager returning into Mudeford in a 10ft plastic dinghy with a 5horse Johnson on the back. Flat out we only just made headway, but I don't remember it running as quickly as in your video, that looks proper scary.

it runs like that on a big spring tide...we often see boats struggling in or out ...yet to give it a try myself as i want to find a nice tide time which suits a run up the river and escape before running aground
when you can keep your head when all those around are losing theirs, you obviously haven't grasped the seriousness of the situation
