Greek Car ferry mooring up in adverse conditions. - perfectly !

This video is about 7 mins long.... it features a Greek car ferry mooring up.... stern first  ( coming in backwards and tying up .... for the landlubbers !)... Some foot passengers get their feet wet,  but they don`t seem to mind !...

Looks like a brilliant piece of seamanship to me.

The one bit of Greece that runs with incredible skill and efficiency.  Cheesy
Been on a fair few, including a one of a pair that were the last journey of the day back from a small island that few people stay on overnight. (too many cars for 1 ferry)
They decided to have a race back to the mainland (just a couple of miles) to get the best landing spot on the ramps! I've got it all on digital video somewhere. Crazy
