From the BBC:

Windsurfer’s accidental crossing

A windsurfer who sailed across the Bristol Channel claims he did not intend to make the three-hour crossing.

Adam Cowles, 24, set out from Swansea Bay and realised he had gone further than planned only when he rounded a cargo ship.

Mr Cowles said he decided to press on in the direction of England after realising his starting point had all but disappeared from view.

“I then went past a cargo ship. I turned around and realised that I had gone too far.

Mr Cowles said that one of the most frightening parts of the day was having to call his wife and ask her for a lift home.

It might be time for Mr Cowles to buy one of these.

    Eyeeeee! Would you look at that bum mouse. I never knew mice had bums that big. That is an amazing story, that windsurfing thing. What if he had run out of wind? Guess there are not sharks about. Lots to think about – goes off holding head.

    it appeals to my love of extreme sports. course it might give me a nosebleed being up there…
