Zero handed sailing

No one down below.
No one in cockpit.
No one on deck.

Telephoto lens from shore?

Toes on the transom, one hand for the camera, the other for the railing..... cool...

The "Oh Sh@t" moment when either one slips?.... priceless....

Nice shot though....

You're a dog that can sail a boat, you have strange powers as it is.

Nope, Catalina 25 don't have a transom that has any place for toes aft of the rail.

David, It is clear what is going on as the reflection in your compass
tells it all, but don't worry I won't give you up...or is that the
reflection of a very large bow wave of a fast approaching vessel!

Dock
You are either standing up in the dink you are towing or hanging off the stern rail. No telephoto.
Or you are still tied to the dock.
