Oh man, where do I start. It will be the most entertaining 6 minutes of your sailing life.

Drama, suspense, hot semi naked people. It has it all...

Seriously, did it not occur to him that maybe dropping the sails might help?

And now back to a crowded Caribbean anchorage near you!r

WOW! Don't think I ever want to leave the Med if that is what happens on the other side of the pond!

Thanks!

Re: The single most entertaining charter boat anchoring video of all time

seriously, anytime I see a boat flying a Jolly Roger I immediately get nervous, and not because I think they might be pirates...

Re: The single most entertaining charter boat anchoring video of all time

So many entertaining minutes aboard..... like the time the cute blond french woman was windsurfing in our anchorage in the nude. She just seemed determined to come right by our boat repeatedly..... My visiting buddy immediately got the board out and tried to go windsurfing. It was hilarious.... finally she surfed over and helped him out.... I dont think he was paying much attention to what she was saying though....

Happens in the med too. Though not everyone will be wearing clothes.

I think I had the camcorder with me too, but we guys were so busy trying to look with mouths agape and without getting caught by the wives that we were pretty busy....

Apparently he fouled the prop (I assume this is what cut loose the trimaran) and in an attempt to recover, raised the sails to try to sail out of trouble. At least that's what he told the charter company. Then things spiraled out of control and someone started filming....

The video is pretty long and booring so I took the liberty to toss everything out and save the best frame.

Similar thing happened once while we were anchored out & rafted up with 3 or 4 other boats. A nice looking young lady cruises around the cove on a jetski totally nude, unlike most people on jetskis she was polite enough not to creat a large wake.

That anchorage looks familiar, know where it is? If it's the one I'm thinking of, when I was there it wasnt terribly differnt than the video, all the charter boats came in just before dark and just dropped the hook and put out fenders "in case we bump in the night" GEEZ
