Gotchidad

I think Gotchidad looks suitably apprehensive to enable everyone to fill in the gaps when the video ends !!!

There were 3 of us on La Frette trying our best to fend off from Martini and hold back the million gallons of French sea pounding into us. Matt was doing leg push excercises with his feet against my A-frame and his back wedged against his; the Gotchi's were doing pretty much the same. I'm just glad my console and seat pods are glassed in and not screwed given that we were wedged between them and Martini's tubes. If it had been the latter I think we may have been driving home standing up and without a steering wheel

Had our boats dried out leaning to port there's every chance they would have been swamped and filled with silt/sand before we knew it.

Moral of the story is to make sure you dry out on the leeward side of the biggest boat, and/or use a kedge anchor to dry out in the right orientation to suit the incoming tide.

Great photos, cheers for the footage also. I can only imagine the expletives as they all came afloat again. Good job as you say they weren't all leant the other way, and or Martini II upstream of everyone. Gulp

Just a small bit of footage from our outbound passage as the sun was rising.

I think that must be a visual version of the doppler effect and the dawn light playing tricks

Or filmed in one ratio and showing in Youtube in another?

Imagine the money saving on marina berths if your boat could lose 3m at the push of a doppler button though.
