At least there was no major harm done and the yacht seems to have escaped anything major. Guess it was a bit of a shock to the driver.

He possibly uttered a few choice words when that happened I guess.

Went down there the other day to store my trailer and the yacht is sitting at the edge of the quay. Seems a bit battered here and there.....
They dont seem to be having a very good year so far, if you remember that yacht that "fell over" a few weeks ago that I posted a pic of.

I spot a distinct lack of outriggers sticking out in that video clip.
