By now you should all know how sketchy Greek ferry landings can be and this video just serves as the latest example of that.
The clip shows a passenger-car ferry loading cars at the Greek Island of Alonnisos in particularly bad weather. From an outsiders perspective, you would think that this is just complete and utter chaos, but yet somehow they pull it off. Just ask any Greek sailor and they will tell you that these ferry Captain’s are some of the best shiphandlers in the world, even if at times it may look bad. And to everyone’s credit, we rarely hear about incidents of these mooring procedures going wrong.
So if you ever find yourself needing to board or disembark one these ferries in conditions like this… move quickly and hope for the best is just about the only advice there is to offer.
