Dragging in East Hotham
Decided to stay another day here in East Hotham to take advantage of the many hiking trails that are here on the island. I hiked in the morning and this afternoon I took my dinghy out for a row and got about a mile away when my neighbor came looking for me to say that my boat had dragged in the wind. He kindly towed me back to the boat and true to his word, my boat had dragged about 5 boat lengths. I promptly pulled up my hook and anchored again, this time using much better scope. If one thing is true about the cruising community, its that they will go out of their way to help each other. Many thanks to Randy and Terry on the Nordic Tug "Hogsbreath."
