That’s a narrow space between two schooners.
Because there are more boats here than mooring space available, these boats are tied up to each other at the wharf . To get to their boat, the crew for the outer boat must make there way from the dock, scrambling over any of the inside boats to get there. Sometime that’s an exercise in agility and acrobatics.
Here crew are pulling up the bumpers as they get ready to leave the dock. It’s the Nova Scotia Schooner Association’s annual race week, folks! This year they sail out of Hubbards.
