VIDEO: Over and out

We don’t know much about this video, but it appears that a cruising sailor ended up aground on a sandy beach in an outgoing tide.

Someone with a heavy-duty excavator is recruited to help tip the boat up onto its large keel in the hope of having the sailor ready when the tide comes in.

In retrospect, it was probably a mistake for him to stay aboard during the ill-fated operation.
