This is picture is from a Spanish blog. Here is the translation from Google: A big shock is what this boat was nearly 12 meters into the harbor on Saturday afternoon at the port of Zumaia. About seven in the evening and in the creeks of Orrua, many boats were returning from a day's sailing. The sea was calm, apparently by a lack of wind but the series of waves entering the bay were very large. Several of these vessels do not control the time of the series and were hit by the waves right in the mouth of the harbor. Ships with a good engine can draw all their power in cases like this but the big problem is for those with little motor yachts. This was the case with this boat called Urola. No well-calculated entry in the series and saw the middle of several waves. In the first as shown in the sequence of photographs to get a move but the lack of engine lets you at the mercy of the next to be engulfed by all the foam. When viewing the present situation and thought that the mast was about to dump, and was able to stand again into port after a big scare.
