Anyone watching? I feel so sorry for him. I am not sure that his dead is even sane.

oooh isn't he from some where in herts? like wgc, or harpenden?

Dead? Dad? Head?

I'm watching it too. I can't imagine doing that - I need brown trousers on just to take a dinghy out in a F5 on a UK reservoir!

He's just a boy - why on earth is he doing this?

The Dad seems like a nutter. The kid is just too damn young for this.

Why? Seems like his dad is the one who has mostly pressured him into it, to live his dream!

I missed the start - which I'm guessing is when nutter Dad made his key appearance.

Nutter dad apparently had his own dream as a child that he would sail round the world and his dad said he's never do it. The original plan was for the dad to follow the son in another boat, doing the round the world trip himself, but they couldn't raise enough money.

Sounds like a certifiable nutter dad.
