Just heading into the main separation system, its like being a hedgehog trying to cross the M25. Thanks to AIS which took out all the guesswork and stress but to add to the confusion there were fishing boats that seemed to ignore all the rules and were travelling in the wrong lane going against the flow of traffic.  Its not worth playing chicken with a very large super tanker as you will definitely not win. It was with some relief that we crossed the separation zone successfully.
