Getting ashore in Niue

Niue is a big sheer sided rock in the Pacific and there is no easy way to land the dinghy here due to the ocean swell.
So there is a crane on the dock, which has a huge hook swinging down. The way to get your dinghy ashore is to manouevre the dinghy under the hook, hook up to strips on the dinghy and get someone ashore to press the up button! Easier said than done when the swell is big, but our technique is improving
