When we were safely anchored in Sami, a bareboat flotilla arrived and began to practise their anchoring and docking procedures for the first time.
These people had obviously never been on a boat before, and it was both a scary and comical experience as we often appeared to be the target that they were aiming for.
They would drop anchor about 100m away and come hurtling back in reverse at full speed and at the last moment they would lose it and go shooting off to the side.
I take my hat off to the flotilla leaders who must be the most patient instructors in the world.
