playing Russian roulette with the fin and rocks
You seem pretty relaxed given your intimate knowledge of that rock shelf!
Caution often heeded at a place we sail that we call "the Asteroid belt", but the odds get slimmer the more you sail there.
The odds went against me one day, got pitched off the top of a wave, was concerned about my stuff, so I pushed off so that it didn't hit any rocks, I was successful at that. But only that, I landed on a rock, hit it like a sack of ice, landing on the side of my harness, it left me seeing stars, a sudden stop can do that to you, it was rather painful.
Got home, took a shower and saw the beginnings of a bruise, no big surprise, but when I got out of bed the next day, this is what I saw, remember this was thru a harness and a wetsuit!
