For many car drivers getting on board of a ferry boat can turn into a “high risk operation” when strong winds blow and the local ports miss the proper facilities. The footage below was filmed on October 3rd 2014 on the island of Alonissos, one of the Sporades island group.
Strong winds are blowing and the waves ‘heave’ the ferry boat catapult up to 50-60cm. The crew and the car drivers are waiting each time for intervals between two wind blows and then they take their very quick chance to get on “Apollo Hellas” of Hellenic Seaways.
The video was filmed by Dimitris Papavasileiou.
PS some Greek internet users suggested some heavy-weight politicians to be posted left and right of the catapult in order to keep it down. 😛
