The case is being heard in court now and a verdict is expected next month. The guy in the yacht was criticised as he was clueless to the COLREGS. He should have been there.

Well yes he may well have been clueless as to Colregs but I'm not sure a professional captain telling the coastguard that he's "the dogs badoodahs" is overly professional!
