Common sense guys. The first one out of the dinghy takes (or is given) the painter, and makes it fast, then the dingy driver gets out. If you are by yourself, and you are not capable of boarding the dinghy from the water, make the painter fast before you step out...

We make sure that if we have guests at night we watch until their lights come on in their boat or signal that all is well. We are all guilty of complacency, especially after a few. It's scary how easy it is for it all to turn to custard

SV L'escale would be one of the most used yachts in the harbour always tucked up somewhere in the Gulf.

No point inviting them over for dinner however maybe lunch instead.
