Looks like the beach in front of sculpture park at the burnt islands
If anchor dragged and tide comming in could cause this outcome
They better hope for a good high tide tonight as its very shallow and lots of rocks about

Yep would agree with you. Maybe a bad piece of anchoring altogether !!

Probably motor boaters having a go with sails and didn't realise raggies have keels.

We saw this today, and just couldn't figure out how they managed it. Weather was ace, and yesterday was calm also. They seemed fairly relaxed about the whole thing - when we approached there was a lady knitting away quite happy on one of the yachts. Maybe they reckon its a cheap way to clean the hull and apply a bit more anti-fouling. Find out tomorrow if they are sat the opposite way over

Was great weather on the clyde for sure!

Got an update from the lifeboat crew.

First yacht picked up a dodgy mooring and it broke.He ended up on the rocks. 2nd Yacht goes to help and gets stuck.
Turns out the 2nd yacht Quest 3 is the recent star of tv documentary about round the world deaf yachtsman Gerry Hughes.Unfortunately it was his boat that sustained damage and temp repairs were made to keep it afloat.

Have watched loads picking up creel markers instead of moorings this year
