After the gale

Left click the photo for a larger view.

The evening before it was blowing around 70 knots in Hout Bay, a second ARC around the world fleet required assitance from the NSRI Station 8,who did a mastefull job of towing her in,even asking the yachts skipper to put his engine in reverse to act as a drouge to slow the yacht down.The yacht was delivered safely to harbour and left for the night on a clear space of harbour wall.The next morning she was moved to the safety of the HBYC marina,seen here being tied up by HBYC members and vistitors.
