Growler

14 March 2016
Richard
While anchored in Maxwell Bay, in front of my friend Jaroslav Pavlicek's Eco-Nelson base, we suddenly had to leave when a wind shift put the nearby glacier upwind of us. This resulted in many growlers blowing over to us. We were anchored with one anchor and two shorelines, so it was not easy to avoid ice heading our way. We pushed this growler off our side, under the shorelines and away from the rudder, but it was clearly time to move.

One of our crew was ashore, and over a hill, so out of VHF radio range. With the crew that were aboard, we retrieved the shorelines, raised anchor, and motored away to the lee of a small island where we anchored until we could arrange to come back and pick up the remaining crew with the dinghy.

Ice makes anchoring more interesting.
