A small story I can tell you about anchor embarrassments that happened last summer when I was in Lefkas (Ionian Sea) with my family.
We were just anchored across the channel in a small cove between Lefkas and Meganisi. Suddenly a 5.5 mtrs OCEANIC RIB arrived with two couples and a few kids on board.
It was August and the place was more than crowded so they decided to stay in the same spot as us.
The chaps got the kids and the women off the boat on to the beach and they went to anchor the boat a little bit further in. The bimini of the boat was up and there were some lines attached between the boat and the bimini to hold it in place.
The bosun (LOLOL
) - after consulting with the Captain, got the anchor out swung it gracefully and through it away only the anchor bounced on one of the lines and landed on one of his feet or tows.
My son 12 and my daughter 3 then were killing them selves laughing as it was something out of a MIKE MOUSE cartoon story.
Possibly it does not sound that funny when describing it but it was hilarious to see.
Pity I didn't have a camera with me.
