It's been fairly windy lately, so we've been spending more time "watching the world go by." Yesterday we looked up just in time to witness another sailboat run hard aground (this seems to happen frequently). The big problem was that the skipper did this just after high tide, and with our spring tides, the low tide was going to be -.6 below datum. He tried getting an anchor out to try and kedge himself off into deeper water, but this method didn't work and only made him start leaning over more...and the tide was falling rapidly. That's when several fellow cruisers showed up to assist.
