How to lift anchor
Most of us know how to do this by now but when the anchor in question is about two hundred and fifty years old and has a lift eye missing, just how do we manage this one?
Club manager Alan reminded me we had this anchor outside the original HBYC club house on the beach. It was discovered when part of the V & A Waterfront was being excavated, then donated to the HBYC, how lucky we are!
As we can see, it takes two HBYC members to do the job.
Plus one more and with his old but trusty crane, I was just too late to get a shot of Ken lifting the clubs old ships sea anchor.
