Littlehampton Harbour Board has just got its first Trot Mooring Customer, but alas, all hasn’t gone as it should.
Not too sure what’s gone wrong here, I suspect the yacht owner has failed to realise that he’s meant to moor his bow to the top chain, and his stern to the lower chain, but I could be mistaken. In any event, something is seriously wrong and with the tide coming in at the speed it does in Littlehampton harbour, there’s a good chance he’s going to go under.
Thankfully, the tactic works and the yacht is out of trouble for now at least. The harbour board also attached rear mooring lines to the chains closest land to hopefully ensure it doesn’t happen again.
