RYA Hout Bay YC marina mooring test

No, I am making that up but just check this seamanship!

It was the MFV Annaliese that extracted itself from the inside of six other vessels a few days back. I was on the marina yesterday and there she is again doing another masterful trick.

Check the stern mooring lines, they are secured to the end of the HBYC marina.
Not one boat mind you but another of a similar size tied along side.
The SW breeze was blowing them on to the marina, I have no idea why they needed to tie up but here they are moving off.

Does the skipper have an RYA or SAS skippers ticket, I wonder but he sure knows what he is doing.
