After consultation on the pontoon this morning it turns out Yacht Rona dragged its mooring, Yacht Rebecca went to its aid. This is all happening at 1.30am!! Yacht Rona went on the rocks, Yacht Rebecca fouled her prop and went on the rocks just East of the pontoon. Fortunately with 6 minutes of high tide left they dragged their yacht off and made it safe on the pontoon. Meanwhile Yacht Rona was struggling but Hamish Corrigal Coxswain very skilfully steered the lifeboat through the half dozen or so yachts and pulled it off. They then stood by till 6.30am, well done boys.
Been a windy day interspersed with many visitors from the yachts who decided to stay, Andrew came over for venison steaks and stayed for three hours helping at the new shed. It was good in the wind and rain to get a hand to fit the building paper. Later Ian Gordon from Yacht November Girl came up and helped to fit the sofit, all in all a good days work but I had to call it a day at 7pm when I ran out of time.
A visit to Dry Harbour before dinner followed by the Olympic opening ceremony was next on the menu. I had a call from Kenny Livingstone Shieldaig who is in Weymouth with MV Seaflower helping out with the sailing at the Olympics. He’s enjoying it but I think he’d like a few quiet days away from the madness.
The TV was abandoned though as the clouds broke and the light was incredible. I got a few shots but missed the best of it but it was great to see and what a finish to the day for our visitors, hope they caught it.
