Masterful control of the ship in a dangerous situation

Ferry NORDNORGE entered Bodo harbor, Norway, and was proceeding to berth, on Jan 21, when suddenly wind strengthened to some 30-35 meters/sec, putting ferry and her Master in a very difficult situation. Understood she couldn’t safely maneuver to skip berthing and wait out until wind quiets down, so Master decided to dock, with onshore wind pushing ferry towards pier. He masterfully controlled ship’s positioning with propulsion and anchor, until the ship finally, berthed alongside pier, as smoothly as if assisted by tugs.
