Yes, That is an amazing handling of the ship and contrary to modern ferries they donīt have directional trust on the bow and transom, they make it the hard way.

There is little the boat captain could do. He put the boat on the right place but the wind was just on the wrong direction and windage has done the rest.

In fact the second line was not needed. It would have been a smarter move to put both lines on the same bollard.
