A Tense Night

Those of us that are ringing the outside are rolling less, apparently being provided some shelter by the cliffs, although it is these very cliffs, the sheltering cliffs, that are worrying us the most. We knew this was a possibility when we set our anchor, and we were confident that our chain and anchor were placed so that even in a strong blow we would not swing into the rocks, but this knowledge does not stop the imagining of possibilities. Perhaps a third of the boats in the harbor have left by the time we pull up anchor. If every boat has someone on deck, something is going on. The wind was not very strong, but the swell was large, 4-6 feet, which doesn't seem like a lot, but when maneuvering a small dinghy it is enough to get your attention. Possibly the holding in this harbor is better, perhaps all the boats here have better anchors and more chain out, perhaps it is just luck. All of the boats were facing out to sea, and every boat had someone out on deck keeping watch. Which way are we pointing, and how are the anchors of all the boats upwind of us. Fortunately we were out at the end of the harbor, only one boat was upwind of us and they seemed secure. One moment we were above the transom of the boat, and the next moment the transom was looming over us. Normally we enter and exit the dinghy from the stern of the boat, the swim platform makes a very good step. Source: Rhapsody on the Blue

The term "exclusive economic zone" describes an area of coastal water in a certain distance from the countrys shore, where the respective state has exclusive rights for fishing and other economic activities. In the immediate aftermath Russian FSB agents fired shots at the North Korean crew to prevent them from obtaining weapons from the border guards and further harming them. Russian border patrol was forced to open fire during inspection of a fishing vessel with North Korean crew onboard.

The Russian border guard vessel fired several warning shots to stop the North Korean ship, yet the vessel still continued its maneuver. The crew resisted search, behaved aggressively, and tried to flee with the members of the Russian security forces on board, according to the Russian Federal Security Service (FSB). The crew of the North Korean vessel also tried to attack the FSB members already on board their vessel. Source: Sam's Alfresco Coffee - The most Offensive and Politically Incorrect Forum ever!
