Christmas Eve Extravaganza!

2am and 27 knot gusts. Anchor broke free and we're drifting towards shore - fast!  Fire up those diesels! Pull that anchor up.  Driving rain! No time for wine.   Must get to deeper anchorage and weave through the mine field of other vessels.  Where's their anchor lights?  Don't they care that we are much bigger and somewhat blinded with the driving rain?

....Just another fun night for captain and crew.  Today is bright, windy and a beauty of a day for sailing.  Amen!
