    At least it's very convenient for the lifeboat.

    Definitely a balls up. Could have been nasty in a bit more breeze. There was one in a foot of water in the entrance to Chi Harbour the other day.

    One big advantage of a twin keeler with shallow draft - you're less likely to run aground and if you do, you just put the kettle on and pretend you meant it.

    I did that some years ago in Durban harbour and I told every one I did it to give my boat a bottom scrub.
