The perils of being a yachtie (contd)

No. 376: Having a keel

This poor yacht owner spent a painful few hours on the sill at Dielette Marina in Normandy on Sunday after apparently failing to realise the height of tide.

The incident caused a problem for smaller draught boats trying to get in and out of the marina on the last of the tide.

The yacht was removed just prior to the sill closing, we are informed.
