Man V Boat in ultimate showdown

Check out this heroic effort to save a boat that came off its mooring at East Esplanade in Manly over the wild windy weekend.

We had a quick word with Marine Area Command who said the man is thought to be the owner’s brother. The water police confirmed they had attended to assist but it was already on a mooring when they arrived, likely assisted by RMS or Marine Rescue.
