The grandstand is facing the wrong way. The crowd is watching but the main action is from the board riding surfers while the tugs are tugging the bulk cargo Pasha Bulker from off the beach.
The ship has loosened and the bow has moved 6 to 8 degrees seaward overnight. I guess the art is in holding it there till evening despite the pounding waves but the line to the main tug seems to have failed. Was it the mainstay? Further attempts at salvage will be carried out with the evening king tides.
It is an old tradition to watch dramas played out at sea.
