So glad that the ship I was on in the Mid 80's was not racing another ship and was merely conducting "Full Power Trials" :wink:
Unfortunately, our "Full Power Trial" was not as successful as another ship that happened to be conducting the same within our vacinity !!!
Next thing you know there will be ludicrous storys regarding firing objects and flying over HM vessels whilst dropping condoms filled with food colouring and flour by ships handing over Gulf Patrols. 8O
