Several years ago I was sailing a small dinghy with my daughter and got caught on a lee shore. It was frustrating and took some time to resolve, but ultimately, I got out of the boat in about 3 feet of water, grabbed the painter and physically towed the boat back to sailing waters. Not so easy to do in this case. All I can say is, "That's some lee shore!"
