Sailing Boats in Harbour

20100829-20100829-IMG_7745I didn’t think that I was going to be able to get out tonight! The day was overcast and the cloud structure looked poor.
However,a clearing started in the north and continued down the island. I got my gear together and went out.
Some clouds did snuff some of the light near sunset ,but I did get the lions share of the light at least!
These two sailing boats were in the harbour.
I noticed something that was a bit odd about these boats. Normally when a boat is anchored ,it is allowed to swing with the tide. That means the bow is always cutting into the current of the tide.
In this shot the two sailing boats are facing each other! I know that the tide was going out,so the boat on the left is facing into the tide,but the other is ass backwards?
It must be double anchored? One off of the bow and one off of the stern.
