That's one way to do the anti-foul cheaply.

Depends on how good your reflexes are if a breeze does pop up.

Re: Hope the wind doesn't blow....

I am sorry if this seems a dumb question, but I have to ask...
Is that photo for real?
It is *nearly* unbelievable. I mean, as the tide went out there had to be no wind, no waves, and the current had to be flowing lengthwise along the hull and have no side movement as the hull was settling. Can this really happen? <<puzzled>>

Re: Hope the wind doesn't blow....

Yep real photo taken at the mouth of the river Hamble in the Solent a year ago. Personally I think he was just getting out of the way of the red oil tanker who was just about to make a turn

That's about the sum of it, the bows are pointing up into the river Hamble. Southampton Water in the back ground would also have a ebb tide which the tankers in the back ground are pointing into, however, its much weeker. What you can't see is a huge underwater gravel bank behind the yacht which follows the shore line (right side of photo) for several miles. Of course top advice on CF is that a yacht has every right to use a channel and shouldn't run away or carry out 90 degree turns just because there is another vessel nearby.
