It was good to see that at least 1 of the 7 quay stationed linesman was wearing a high VIZ waist jacket   {-)...... Derek

I've watched it 3 times and still don't know how anyone wasn't washed off the quay!

I hope there was only one ferry a day.

It would give those poor guys time to dry out in the sunshine.

What happened to the brave motor-cyclist near the end - we presume he made it!
That's two fingers up to Health & Safety there!  %)

That is only a concept practiced in the UK and Germany, the rest of Europe ignores it :-))

I am aware of that Brian, but that sort of dangerous activity seems incredulous to responsible authorities like the UK concerning public safety or even plain common sense, but I suppose the natives have no option but to risk their lives if that is the only way of travelling to or from  an island. The 'jetty' is a bad joke!  <*<

Dangerous !! seemed pretty normal to them, no one looked that bothered, however they should have let all the cars off \ on first before the foot passengers tried to get on.. Never mind the waves, a few nearly got run over..
