The only one's laughing are the ones who have never docked a boat. Personally I find sailing in heavy weather to be more enjoyable,less stressful and easier then bring my boat into dock under heavy wind. I have spent enough time at my harbour over the years to notice people's reactions to a docking gone bad. The non sailors tend to stand and stare, the sailors? A look of sympathy without trying to make eye contact with said captain. We have all been there and will be there again.

Have fun
John
