Tide can be dangerous
A serious yacht accident happened in England the day before yesterday, requiring immediate rescue efforts: a 25-foot yacht stuck on rocks off the coast of Anglesey during an unfavorable tide
In calm weather, the tidal current unfavorable for yachtsmen carried the yacht onto stones, where it was stuck in a helpless position. Rescuers had to go to sea twice – first to remove the crew, then – to remove the yacht itself from the stones and tow it to the harbor.
The story once again reminds us of how dangerous the tide can be, even in calm weather.
