They all think they "can do it"....I'm sure they got a very good scare over that one. Lucky, lucky !!!!

and where were the tugs...?

Hi Benoit

Excellent set of photographs charting this ferries precarious departure from Nice (by the way the sea shows lovely shades of colour that have been nicely captured).

I would have thought the vessel should perhaps have been assisted by tugs in such conditions?

Regards
